Main attraction


A couple of butterflies were flitting around these flowers the other day and it was overcast.  A perfect setting  so I went in for the camera and pulled up a chair.



Then along comes


and rubbed against the plants sending the butterflies off to find undisturbed flowers.


Luckily, the butterflies were back later in the day and the sky was still overcast.





"I'm still the main attraction."

The day is really hot.

Even a butterfly is sweating profusely.

You got some awesome shots of the butterflies. Patience and diligence paid off here. Even with the cat trying to horn in, you managed to snap some great ones!

Great collection of photos; they are stunning! I love the colors and the close up of the cat.

LOL! We have a stray cat here that looks a lot like yours. She had kittens under our storage shed. I'm hoping to find a good home for them.
Glad the butterflies came back. Great shots!
