Ci sono farfalle bellissime da te in autunno, l'ultima poi è meravigliosa! Complimenti anche per le foto, mi piace moltissimo la nona, così luminosa e delicata!

You have skillfully captured some real beauties.

I am amazed at all the different butterflies. They are all very beautiful.

Karen said...

Ignorant me. While I was aware of all the birds that you all got there (I lived in Sierra Vista for two years, home to one of the great birding areas in Garden Canyon), I must have missed those beautiful butterflies (hangs head in shame).

Thank you, Diane for the lovely photos.

I am amazed with how beautiful and sharp your photos are. They are wonderful. Have a great weekend.

Janie said...

Great photos. I'm surprised that your autumn butterflies look so flawless. When I see them here late in the year, their wings are looking a bit ragged.

Butterfly bliss! Fantastic photos!!!

Warren said...

I especially like the first butterfly shot in your series -- excellent!

Noushka said...

Congratulations for your butterflies!
The Buckeye is absolutely gorgeous!

Your drangonflies are incredible, so different from those we have in Europe.
I wish I could come over and photograph them, just amazing!
I like your blog! ;-)
Cheers from France!

The Queen butterfly and the Common Buckeye were my favs out of all of them, but they were all very beautiful. How are you able to get them to be still enough in order to take the photos??? :-)

Jak to miło popatrzeć teraz na piękne motyle, jak u nas już nie fruwają, bo jest późna jesień. *** Mam propozycję, zagość u mnie na stałe, jeśli oczywiście chcesz. Pozdrawiam.
How nice to look now at the beautiful butterflies, as we have no longer fly, because it is late autumn. *** I have a suggestion, come to me on a permanent basis if the course you want. I'm with you for a long time. Yours.
