The Yellow Warbler is such a beautiful golden yellow color. Beautiful butterfly shots. I find it so difficult to get shots of the Sulfurs, they move about so quickly!

I'm finally starting to see an assortment of butterflies. I seem to have 3 regulars who are around most of the day.

I enjoyed your photos.

Hello to all! That yellow warbler is just darling. Love all the photos. I have to say that I deadheaded my butterfly bush today (since you reminded me the other day) :) Thanks for the beautiful, colorful, wonderful photos & posts! -tammy

I never cease to be amazed by the amazingly colourful creatures you see Sherry. The Yellow Warbler is stunning and of course I just love the Monarch and Swallowtail. The Cloudless Sulphur reminds me a little of our Clouded Yellow. Thank you for sharing your lovely photos, enjoy the rest of your week.

Such sweet little creatures you photograph. I love the little yellow warbler. What a nice place for a sip of nectar - a ruby red hibiscus! Ummm - delicious!
