Well, Hello to all my Followers, that might have left me by now. I see that I have not Posted anything in the past 3 months, but that seems to be ok for me. There are times when I just don’t have that much to Post about so I take a break for awhile. When I do this I have a bunch of blog posts to catch up on. This may take some time for me.
What I’ve found out is now that I have not been Posting here, I’m having a bit of a problem putting Images on my site. Things have changed a bit, so I have to more or less start all over again. I used to use Windows Live Writer, but now for some reason I just can’t do that anymore. I have to use the Post writing on the WordPress Site that I have not used in a age.
Ok, so let’s get started with this. One of the bushes that I have out in the back yard is what’s called a Butterfly Bush. I’m sure that you’ve heard of them or even have one. I bought this bush 3 years ago, and planted it where I could see it from the kitchen window. The first Winter that we had after planting, I thought that it was dead when Spring came around next year. That Winter was so darn cold, windy, and full of snow that I thought it did not survive. Now, this past year it surprised me. Last years Spring showed some Life in it and it was turning green with new leaves and flowers! I was amazed.
Now, this Spring and Summer it has grown a whole lot,much, in fact, that it has started to attract Butterfly’s, which surprised me again. Guess that I do have a “green thumb” after all. Anyway, I noticed that there were 3 of these types of Butterfly’s on the bush and they were so pretty I just had to get the Nikon and try and shoot one.
I found that they are not all that easy to photograph. Always flying from one flower to another. Just would not sit long enough for me. Then what I found is you have to stay put in one place and wait for them to come around. I finally got this one that is shown above. He sure is pretty, I think.
There have been other Butterfly’s floating around the bush, but none quite a pretty as this guy. Found out this one is called a Swallow Tail Butterfly. I’m waiting for some Monarch Butterfly’s to show up. I’ll get them too!
Till the next time. Thanks for reading and still following.
