Congratulations to birdied for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 14 votes - View Previous Winners


Still in the garden.

As always , I appreciate your comments and suggestions .


Thank you for taking the time to look. I hope you find something to enjoy .

Birdie


P.S. last one added for Karl . At first when I saw the Queen, I thought it was Monarch as it flitted by. They are very similar but the Queen has different marking and the white strip down the body.


Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

I have not heard or seen that I know of a Queen Butterfly, so thank you and an excellent image. These all are fascinating but it is #8 that is outta this world beautiful

Such wonderful work at this smallish in size level, nice comps, great color and sweet details make these POP!!

Karl

I'm glad you added the topside view of the Queen, thought for sure it was a Monarch!

Wonderful set Birdie. While the subjects are beautifully captured, I think the flowers add quite a bit to the overall image.
