The windows are dirty, please pardon the spots ...

Make Time for Small Reflections

While photographing

this colorful butterfly
I caught reflections

unexpectedly
in the dirty windows of
patio French doors

Julie said...

The butterfly is very pretty and so well captured. It is good to see the reflected palm trees behing the butterfly.

Good post for the meme.

Vixen said...

Isn't it wonderful when you get a great shot (like of the butterfly), but then when you see it later you see an extra bonus you didn't notice before! I love the reflection.

Ida said...

A pleasant and beautiful surprise. :)
Very nice!

Carletta said...

I had to smile at the first picture of the butterfly which is awesome - I almost posted a dirty window with a reflected rose. Another week I will for sure. :)
I like the kitty one too!

moorebloglife said...

Stunning creature in your reflection, and wonderful reflections to accompany it!

Diane AZ said...

Breathtaking! With the reflection almost monochrome, the butterfly really stands out!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

What a gorgeous photo of that butterfly! And if the spots on the windows are made by four-footed friends, they are the best kind of spots to have! I miss the noseprints that used to be on mine more than I can say, but someday, hopefully in the not too distant future, I'll see those prints again!

XO,

Beautiful butterfly captures. The reflections in the glass are an interesting effect, showing what the rest of the garden looks like.

Pamela said...

You should have given that butterfly a squeegee. heh heh.

(Kidding, of course. I find it hard to get around to washing windows)

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

Some of my best photos have dirty windows in the background. They make an interesting backdrop. However, I do not have lovely butterfly pictures like this. Fabulous!!!!

Nice series of shots. I like the kitty sitting in front of the window.
