Butterflies

The theme this week by Lew is "Butterflies". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. 

This is a neat subject. I went fishing today and guess what decided to ride with me for a short time. I was able to get this butterfly in several parts of the boat. It landed on a towel on a seat, I thought this was some interesting color combinations. It was tasting the yellow towel.
 It was opening and closing its wings.
It went over to a trolling rod holder.
It then went upside down for a show.
It finally went to the rear wooden panel to show off.
See what my friends have shown on my sidebar.

Fantastic detail and color in that header, Fishing Guy! I also like how all the butterfly shots are connected back to the personality of the photographer through the fishing boat.

That was a cooperative butterfly and a very pretty one as well.

A beautiful butterfly. The colors are spectacular. Our butterflies seem to be missing in action this year. I hope it's just temporary. I miss them. Hugs =)
