I will first give you a bit of background on why I am sharing this beautiful butterfly with you and it's not just because of the sheer beauty. On Monday I participated in Macro Monday and I shared a photo of a beautiful butterfly perched on a flower at the zoo. Little did I know that my husband "accidentally" deleted my butterfly photo and not only captured a butterfly himself but kept his before it even made it to the desktop. So I shared the beautiful butterfly at the zoo photo and later found out that it was his to share. I made the correction on my post and forged ahead.
Yesterday the girls and I were on the beach taking pictures, playing in the sand and water and having a wonderful time. Butterflies were swooshing over our heads and landing in our neighbors flowers. As I was watching Hannah climb up the stares and putting mommy arm gates up around her I saw the butterfly land on some of the sand toys. I quickly grabbed Miss Hannah and went for it...slowly. I thought for sure the butterfly would flutter away quickly, but he/she hung around for a couple moments while I took a few shots. I hope you like them!
Although not the closest shot, I enjoy it none the less.
I quite enjoy this one as well.

I am also starting to come to the conclusion that my Macro isn't all that Macro.
