Ouitdoor Wednesday



I am happy to be joining A Southern Daydreamer, Susan and her friends for another great Outdoor Wednesday show. You can see some really great nature pictures.








This is a little butterfly I was trying capture. It is not easy as they move too fast. At least I think you can tell what it is.


These are two hanging baskets. They still are doing pretty well considering the Texas heat.

Oh, such a pretty orange butterfly. Aren't they lovely additions to the garden--even though they are so flighty?! I love to watch them amongst all the flowers in my garden, too!

Have a lovely week~

I love trying photography but I'm not very good at it. At least you captured that butterfly! And the hanging baskets survived the heat, so far! How wonderful!! Best wishes to you for a good week!!

Hard to capture a butterfly, as they flutter-by!

Your pots are doing amazingly well. Ours just BAKE in them.

When it's too wet and miserable t go outside, it's lovely to look at pictures like these. Don't know what the butterfly is though. xx

Nice outdoor post!

We've started seeing the yellow butterflies around here. A friend told me once that meant it was almost time for college football. Saw my first sulphur yellow of the season a couple of days ago, so I think his theory must be true.

You and me both...this inferno! In Texas.

My O W is posted now...it's a continuation [and last entry for the week] of our tour of the Botanical Gardens.

I clicked to enlarge the butterfly - it is very pretty - like a little flower blossom!

What LOVELY photographs! I find it challenging to capture butterflies with my camera too. Thanks for your visit to my Outdoor Wednesday post at Sacred Ruminations. Happy belated 80th birthday. I'll be turning 65 in February and am delighted to know (from one who's experienced the next decade) some of what's ahead ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

LV,

Thank you so much for the beauty you have so gracefully captured in these beautiful pictures. I too, am such a lover of butterflies but I call them flitterby's instead.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Beautiful photos! Are you still busy reading all your birthday greetings???

Lori E said...

Oh they are so hard to photograph, they wait and wait for you to get your camera and as soon as you put your finger on the button they take off.
That is a very pretty orange one. I don't think I have any like that in western Canada.

Mary said...

Both photos are lovely and, yes, I can make out the butterfly. I love the images you chose to share with us today.

How did you catch the butterfly? Beautiful photos, they are an inspiration.
