I love butterflies, they are so gorgeous yet so fragile.  The monarchs are migrating right now.  Last week a local suburb had over a thousand of them in the trees.  Can you imagine.  Today I finally got some pics of the ones that have been teasing me in my own yard.  The purple flower is my butterfly bush.  Aren't they gorgeous?

I chased this one all over the yard and yet it never would let me get an "open" picture of him.

This is the same butterfly.  Beautiful orange and brown on the inside and yet red and blue and different colors on the outside. Perhaps he is a blender so no one will see him.  Mr bumblebee wanted in on the pictures as well.

This one almost looks like a moth and wanted a picture as well.
