Macro Monday *Buckeye Duo*

I don't usually say this about my own photos, but I really, really like this photo. I was thrilled to capture two of my favorite butterfly, the Common Buckeye, in the same image. Plus they are both showing off their beautiful wings, which is an added bonus! And, did I mention they are on a purple wildflower? Just sayin'!

But, I have to wonder... do you think that one is planning an ambush from behind to claim the wildflower all to itself? I do think I detect a plan here...

Stunning capture!


That is indeed a gorgeous picture. No wonder you are thrilled. So, Buckeye is its name. And 2 no less :-)


I can barely capture one little flutterby at a time and you got two!
Beautiful shot!

Hope to see you visit me ...have a glorious Monday.


So it's a buckeye?! I never knew that. I came for Macro monday which I have on my photo blog, but I have a photo of a buckeye and two smaller butterflies on my regular blog. I need to identify them! Do you typically know their names? They were all on one bloom together.


LOVE it! Oh the luck! Nice to see two!

Gorgeous, Misty!


Gorgeous! I love butterflies, and they seem to be in an abundance this year. Not sure if it's the heat or what.


Gorgeous capture....nice shallow depth really makes the butterflies stand out!
