thanks Betsy. I was just so excited to finally get a shot at a butterfly outside that I would have stayed until I dropped! I wanted the light & if I would have waited until it got cooler I would have missed the light. Now I have to decide if I want to brave the mosquitoes tonight to get a meteor shower!

Kudos for the effort, Charlotte. I would not have been outside, so I will say Double Kudos.
Sorry about all that heat --- and humidity, I presume. Challenging!

Thanks Eileen & Gary. I worked hard for this shot. They just arrived & are full of energy & very skiddish & of course the more you chase them the faster they get . If you are focused on one flower & they land on one 2 feet away, good luck in getting your camera moved & focused in time before they fly away. I think the heat index was 109-115 so drops were rolling down my back just standing there & my heart was pounding like I had run 1/2 a mile!
