Reality hits…


I so enjoyed the trip Carrie and I took to the Magic Wings place in South Deerfield, Massachusetts.  A lot of the pictures I got made it look like I was in the jungles of South America or Africa hunting down butterflies in the wild.  Well, the truth is (DUH!) that Magic Wings consists of two large rooms filled with plants that make butterflies happy.  So they make it is easy for you to make believe that you were on a butterfly safari when you get those photos home.
 
Of course, not all the butterflies are cooperative when it comes to feeding this fantasy.  Some of them refuse to land on the green plants but have to stop on walls or benches or even on the floor of the place.  Please watch where you are walking if you ever go there.
 
All the shots I am posting today are of uncooperative butterflies.

The second shot is my favorite. During a couple of our cruises we visited butterfly farms - I completely understand the uncooperative nature of butterflies.

These photos are just gorgeous even though they seemed uncooperative. I like the backgrounds they landed on for contrast. Beautiful!

Loving these shots, Barb. Something about the colorful butterfly on a plain, textured surface is very appealing.

The pictures are close to poetry. In my opinion.

Please have you all a good Sunday.
