Visit by a beautiful butterfly

Boy, have I been lazy about posting. Up to the normal summer, job, & granny kind of stuff! Really looking foreward to a 2 week vacation starting in 2 days. We are going to spend a couple of days at Codorus State Park. The state park system in PA has built camping cabins which are really neat - log cabins with beds - sleeps 5, a small table & electricity. No bathroom facilities, but we find very few other to share the camp showers with this time of the year. There is a small porch on front (perfect for my hammock), a campfire ring, & picnic table. I can spend my time with my camera, some good books, & just relaxing. There is a lake, so the boat & fishing gear is going along to entertain Andy during our stay, since he is not good at sitting still! Will plan to share some of my captures as time goes on.
I entered several pictures in our county fair last week (at Andy's encouragement) & did pretty well. I managed a 1st, 3 seconds, 2 thirds, & a fourth. No too bad. I will share those shots when I figure out which disc or flash drive they are on! Today I want to share a couple butterfly shots with you. This beauty hung out & was a perfect model. Wasn't even concerned about how close I got.

Pretty butterfly! Nice work. I really like the sunset pics on the earlier post. You're right that not much is free but shows like this can't be bought!

Congrats on all of your wins, WTG!!!

Congratulations on your wins at the fair!!

You have nice photos of butterflies; Salty likes to take pictures of butterflies as well and I like to use them on my greeting cards!
