Cabbage White Butterflies

About a week ago I photographed this Cabbage White in my flowerbed at the front door. There also was a very small black butterfly that I tried to photograph but was not able to capture. It ended out being on me when I went back in the house, and scared me when it started down my leg. I was able to catch it, not with my camera though, and released it outside.

This past Saturday I was out photographing the Cabbage White butterflies in my yard.

Again I saw the small black butterfly, but again was not able to capture it with my camera.

But I did capture this action shot. Not very good photographically speaking,

but I just had to post it anyway.

No I did not know what I had until I got it in the computer.

This photo is where "Photos For Fun" comes in.

I can just see you running in circles after the black butterfly. (I do it too). These are wonderful photos. I saw several Butterflies over the weekend, I posted them this morning. I always think of you when I photograph them.

These are great captures, Leedra. Sometimes we don't know what we've gotten until we look at it on the computer screen.

Love you,

I love the cabbage whites! How funny that he thought your leg was good place to be. And turns out your camera was catching action they thought was private. :)
