Camera-Critters #68

I apologize I'm late with my post this week, but you should still feel special, because I'm making this post before I've even had my first cup of coffee. Yes, that is dedication. So... ummm please ignore any typos or even bundles of words which make no sense... I'm not 'alive' yet because I haven't had my coffee. ;-)

After an uneventful walk the other day, I was returning home when I spotted this 'leaf'. However, last time I checked, leaves hang from trees and don't hang from grass.

Ohhhhh Silly me. That's not a leaf!
It's a Question Mark butterfly.
It really should turn around,
it's gonna get a headache!

Don't forget Heads or Tails on Tuesday, Looking at the Sky on Friday, and for your weekend enjoyment...

Good morning, Misty. Great butterfly captures. This is one I've never seen (except for in my field guides).


Thanks for posting before your coffee...I wanted to get my link up before I head out for a morning of errands... and to get myself not just a cup of coffee, but a coffee POT!

Fabulous photo find!

I'm going to have to start paying more attention to what I think are leaves


Gorgeous butterfly - well spotted!


Good morning, Misty (before your coffee??!!!). Wonderful shot! I'll remember to try not to step on leaves!

To be honest, I don't have so much photos of small critters like this, because I knew that my camera has limitations...but this entry of yours are cool


Oh wow! You have a good eye. It's a happy thing you spotted this beauty. Love the color and spots.

Happy weekend! :)


It's quite lovely nice shot.

Delightful! I like telling stories, too!


Fascinating find. I've never seen such a thing .... but maybe I was just assuming they were leaves!


Beautiful shot of a beautiful creature, thanks for sharing:)

Terrific work, Mist.


So pretty and it did look a leaf at first.


Great eye! I'm pretty sure I would have missed this. :)


You got a great shot. At first I couldn't tell what it was either!!

I love butterflies and they are hard to capture in a good shot.

Thanks so much for dropping by and visiting and leaving such a wonderful comment!!

I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!!:-)


These are awesome photos. Never heard of a question mark butterfly before.


what a gorgeous butterfly, love her spread eagle post.


These are two that I have yet to see. As a matter of fact, inspite of all the foods available here, I have yet to see a butterfly this summer.
