Photo Shoot with a Butterfly

I have been trying to capture a butterfly on camera for a while now. We always seem to have one flying around outside. Of course when I go get my camera, it is gone when I get back! Yesterday, I tried again and succeeded:) I went and got the camera and walked up slowly to the area where the butterfly was fluttering. It must have been in a picture taken mood. Here are a few shots from our "photo shoot".
Let me know what you think.
I think these are beautiful creatures. I loved catching some of the white underneath the wings in some of the pictures.

Great! I'll have to show Elizabeth these pictures, she has an unbelievable love for butterflies.

Elizabeth also calls your blog the Strawberry shortcake blog..because of the birthday cake/party. So when I talk about your blog I can't call you by name just Strawberry shortcake :)
