Blogging For Fun Friday- B is for Butterfly

Twitter
Okay, it is Saturday now, and I am one day late :) I know my Blogging for Fun family will understand why my post is a day late, and why I only thrive on weekends now :(

This week's theme is anything that starts with "B", and with so many "B" in my mind, starting with over 30 pictures of "bees, birds, butterflies and blossoms", i finally decided to just focus on butterflies so that your screen won't get pictures overload :)

From 30 pictures, I finally decided to just share these ten butterfly photos :) . I am copying Icy's style in giving captions to the photos in this post, though my captions are not as catchy and as witty the way she presents her wonderful photos, but I believe I tried hard enough :) Here goes, hope you will enjoy them!

1. Black Loves White


2. Look at Me, Please.....


 3. What Are You Looking At?


4. Can you please give me some privacy?


5. Eyes on Camera, please :)


6. Side Glance


7. I am working......


8. I am a Happy Brown!



9. I spread my wings!



10. Though I have been whipped by the wind, but I can still spread my wings and fly!


PS....I am glad to see several of my friends into photography now, Cher has her new Cher Sanz Photoblog, congratulations to you Cher! Also, Tes and Eng have been wonderfully sharing their photos, so proud of you dear friends. Truly, the gift of nature is all around us and is free, it is up to us if we take them.

Also, congratulations to Che for having also a new blog, Uncovering a Culture, which focuses on Filipino culture.  Thanks Che for showcasing our very own.

  2. An amazing collection of butterfly photos.

    It nice when friends join in with photography. You can help and learn for each other and it's always nice to see the different things people see through the lens.

  4. i had a great time viewing your lovely butterfly photos, beth!! you truly captured the romance between the butterfly and the flower:) i think my favorite was the pix with the caption saying something like, "though i have been whipped by the wind, i can still spread my wings and fly." what a timely challenge, beth. we may be hit time and again by various trials in life, but like the brave butterfly, so should we take heart and never give up. by God's grace, we should continue to spread our wings and fly, until victory is ours:) thank you for the inspiration, beth!

  5. betchai your photos are beautiful, as always. I was going to do the blue morpho butterfly, but I decided on the bats. I love butterflies, they are just lovely, and I love to watch them. They are very interesting creatures.

  8. Beth, as a teacher would give an exam to her students, my answer is ALL OF THE ABOVE! These are a beauty! The images, the captions speak well of how we can be enthralled by nature's beauty. I am happy to have found my new blogging family. It has brought me joy, a simple joy of reading and sharing what is at hand.

    Take it easy, and see you around when you can. Take care.

  16. What a beautiful array of butterflies! You captured all of them within the same day betchai?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks everyone,

    @ VS, no, I did not capture all of them in the same day, haha, they were my collection from all previous springs :) one of the reasons I love spring so much despite my allergies :( , the air is so alive with busy bees, butterflies and wonderful blossoms.

    It is just fall right now, but I am so looking forward to spring since I got a new macro lens, all these shots were taken by only a standard lens, I am excited to use macro lens for butterflies :)

    @ Joops, they were all taken here in San Diego.

  38. You are all very smart and talented young girls. So keep generating those mind flow of ideas.

    I haven't visited your personal blog before though I already had invaded Tes, Eng, Cherie, and Cher ...anyone else?

    And I love your butterflies as much as I am amused with your captions.

    Captions need not be catchy or witty. What flows from your heart is what makes it catchy and witty.

    So blog on ... fotoblog on too!
