Flower Feeders

I caught a few flower friends, but have no specifics, as my clover flower and butterfly skills are nil. What do you say blogger buddies? Can you I.D. better than me?

Hi Hannibal,

Not sure about the first but the second is a swallowtail (black swallowtail if think it's called). Not sure if male or female since I can't see the tops of the wings. One has green and one has blue on top, I think blue is female.

Nice shots!

The top one is a Painted Lady and the bottom I believe an Eastern Black Swallowtail. Gorgeous shots!!

Those Swallowtails are hard to photograph..at least for me..they never stop moving. I got a few shots yesterday, but none so nice.

Whatever the butterflies are they are gorgeous...the first one has such a lovely detailed eye. So glad you got that new lens!!

My header is an Oakleaf Hydrangea. Thanks for commenting on it.

Neat butterfly shots, Hannibal! That new camera lens is really paying off with these close ups!! The colors and detail work you are capturing are very nice!!
