You're My Butterfly by Silver-Dew-Drop You're My Butterfly by Silver-Dew-Drop
You're My Butterfly

Your are the most beautiful thing
I've ever seen
You shine just like sunlight rays
On a winter snow
I just had to tell you so

Your eyes sparkle as the stars
Like the moon they glow
Your smile could light the world on fire
Or did you know?

Your minds full of everything
That I want to know
I just had to let you know
I just had to tell you so
Your're my butterfly
Fly high
Fly fly fly


Lyrics/Song - Lenny Kravitz

:heart: Dedicated to my better half :cuddle: :love:
----------------------------------------------

I hope you enjoy this pretty little butterfly that I took in my garden not too long ago :) He didn't seem to mind me poking around with my camera... I was glad of the opportunity! He didn't stay long but I managed to get a few good shots :clap: I adore the markings and colourings of his wings! Isn't that red/orange colour just stunning! :clap: Such a pretty lil thing! :aww: :butterfly: I'm very proud of this photo, I really love how it turned out. Looking back and my gallery from beginning to now, I can truly see how I have grown as a photographer and this fact makes me very happy and accomplished :heart: Certainly I have a long way to go yet, but the nice thing about this hobby is that I am very passionate about it. Hopefully some day I can do something more with photography :camera: That'll be so amazing!

:sherlock: Thanks to the investigative brilliance of a friend, I've found out the name of this pretty butterfly! It is called "American Lady - Vanessa virginiensis" They seem to be common to New England, though I am guessing generally on the East coast (since I'm in Virginia ^^;) and are under the category of "Anglewings" :aww:

Full view is best, thank you! :D

Wow! :wow: I have the exact same butterfly species in my gallery. He has a ripped wing so I named him Ripper. Have any idea what species it is? This is a great shot! :D

Thanks for your lovely comment! I have no idea about the species, I think you mentioned you would try to find out. Please do let me know when you do! :clap: :hug:

Ripper is such a cute name, BTW! :aww: :butterflytwo:

I know what "Ripper" and your beauty is: it's an American Lady (American Lady - Vanessa virginiensis) I found it in "Butterflies of New England" online. Google that up and it will take you to "Painted Ladies and other Brushfoots". The image was spot-on with what we've got. Damn I love the internet. :winner:

You're welcome sweetie, keep up the great work.:cuddle:
I know what you mean though, any kind of insect is hard to capture.
I want to photograph butterflies, but I'll have to go to our zoo to take photos of them. We just don't see many here sadly.

Yes :bug:'s are rather hard, they seem to have a lil buggy-sixth sense and know you're coming (with a camera no less :o -- they always stick around when I don't have my camera :ohmygod: lol)
Well I can't wait to see your butterfly pictures, I'm sure they'll be great :clap:
