I love this one! It takes such patience to capture 'flutterbies' doesn't it? Enjoyed your 'gobbler' family photo too. Thanks for sharing both.
Hugs and blessings,

I wish I were a butterfly...

Becky and Gary said...

I'm waiting for Butterflies too. Not many passed through here this summer.
We did name the Monarch I had. Monty was what we called him till "he" emerged, and them my granddaughters changed the name to "Emma", so off she flew into the wild blue yonder. I have found another catterpillar 2 days ago, so now will be looking for another name.
