This week, for Photo Hunt, the category is blue. The other day, while it was warming up from the chilly night before, and the sun was out shining ever so brightly, our back yard was 'alive' with flying moths and butterflies. This blue moth was very busy going from one blossom to the next around our Pyracantha [the orange berries that bird life loves!] and the Duranta bush [the purple flowers]. I captured several photos of different ones that were flitting from the Duranta and the Lantana bush...





[there is a moth in the bottom left photo --near the top center...his wings are in motion...enlarge it!]

  1. Love your "Blue"! Do you know what it is? It's just gorgeous! I planted a lot of Duranta in my yard, too - the butterflies really do love it.

    I see you've switched over to your Thanksgiving look - very festive!

    Please stop by if you get the chance - I'm "Blue" on so many different levels this week! (Well, you know why!)

  12. Anni,

    Love your little turkey that is telling us not to post anonymously and your new look is spectacular. However, there is a little red x where your header should be and I expect you are working on it as I type. Great job!

    Wow! That moths wings are really moving. That is a great shot. The butterflies are delightful. I didn't see many this year. They are beautiful.

    Have a great weekend, my friend.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  13. Great job capturing the butterflies/moths. The flower garden at school has been alive with them this past week also. I get the chance to sit in the garden just about everyday on a little break I have from the kids. Helps me re-center my world. Great shots for this week.
