Spicebush  swallowtail

It's a good thing I don't have alot of neighbors, I looked like a fool running around all over the yard, waiting for this little tease to find some place to land !

Oh Flcrazy I can relate ! Today I was out crawling around on all 4's chasing after the prettiest little blue damselfly. As soon as I'd get close enough to get a shot she'd be off to another blade of grass.

Your Spicebush guy found a great place to land........the pic is awesome ! I LOVE that Coleus in the background........havn't seen that one before.

It really can be almost impossible to get a good shot sometimes, can't it! You did it this time - well done and who cares what neighbours think!

Nature is so clever to provide all those colours.
Flcrazy - you are clever to photograph it all.
And all that running round the yard -
well, you won't need to pay out for a subscription to the gym LOL

From a woman who has run out in her PJ's to fling myself down at a chipmunk burrow before he re-emerged, and built blinds out of lawnchairs and blankets to photograph birds, I commend you ! "Crazy Lady' salute!!

Absolutely stunning Flcrazy, imagine having that butterfly gliding over your garden! Fabulous, fabulous creature!!!!!

First of all, beautiful shot Flcrazy! Love the buttefly and the colors, gorgeous!
Grammazo- Did you make yourself a camoflage tent to take pictures in? I was recently telling Jeff that I needed to make something like that to take pictures of the hummingbirds, lol. That's so funny! Make a hat with twigs or something... :) Here's to crazy ladies everywhere!

Hear, hear...I salute you all...! lol. No one could ever accuse us of being boring ...!

I know what you mean. we have a butterfly similar to this, a beautiful black with bright turquios on the wings. He will flitter and flutter all around me and land beautifully with wings wide open but let me go get the camera and he is no where to be found....camera shy...maybe....yeh! I'm sure the neighbors wonder what kind of a nut-bird I am but I use these photos for birthday, well-wishes and Christmas cards. When they receive them they are very pleased so I am just saying my efforts are well worth it.

Great ideas Skippy!

20 Sep, 2008

 

Yes Skippy, those really are some great ideas ! I've tinkered with the idea of making my own calendar, but I don't know how to go about it.

Do you have microsoft publisher? I use that for everything. I write and illustrate my own little booklet stories for my grandkids, make my own personalized cards for all occasions and create embellishments for my scrapbooks (I use my own photos as page embellishments)

22 Sep, 2008

 

No I don't Skippy, thanks so much for the info ! I will definitely be researching this one !

Well worth the effort, great photo

Another beautiful shot ! Tell the neighbours to go whistle ! haha A saying comes to mind which I've altered a little .. 'You don't have to be mad to be a gardener ......... but it helps' !!! lol

30 Aug, 2009

 

LOL...., yes Sue it certainly does help, I'm living proof of that !

30 Aug, 2009

 

You and me also !!! lol
