I love so much about winter–I really do. But it really needs to leave Michigan already. We’ve recently had a little taste of warmer weather (I’m talking 20’s and 30’s here) and this stupid polar vortex that I’ve never heard of before needs to take a hike. This morning the temperature is something like 10 below and the next week looks miserably cold. I don’t know the specifics–I refuse to hear them. But for goodness sake, enough already!
Ah, that’s better! Boy, how I want to take a walk in the warm sunshine and photograph flowers and butterflies. It’s not going to happen for a while, but I can dream while looking at my pictures. I remember taking the above photo at Airlie Gardens in North Carolina. I had just spent a ton of time in the butterfly house snapping pictures and then walked out and saw this beautiful butterfly on the grounds. I love this photo.
Butterfly houses are a lot of fun and a great place to get some really good butterfly photos. A few nearby to me will be opening soon and I can’t wait. Here are a couple pictures I snapped at butterfly houses.
I love a butterfly’s compound eyes–and especially when they are clear and focused in a photo.
Here are a few more of my favorite butterfly photos. The colors just make me so happy.
So I’m dreaming. It will get warmer, the landscape will melt and bloom into all the colors of spring and summer. And there will be butterflies again.
