yes....

I chase butterflies...
what of it? :)
I recently had an opportunity to trot out my relatively new macro lens - I had a good time ogling flowers and chasing butterflies...hope you don't mind as the next week or so shall be an ode to spring via photos :)
This lovely is called a Malachite - I don't recall ever seeing a green hued butterfly before. There were also some really stunning lunar moths, but they were not sleeping in convenient places for photographs (apparently moths are indeed nocturnal and once they find a perch for the day, that's where they stay!)

The orange one in this photo is a Julia, the blue/black one is a Swallowtail, but I forget the specific variety.

Hope you all had a good Earth Day!

I love your photos! Your not alone when you are out chasing butterflys...
What kind of camera are you using?
