Beautiful! I love the color of that royal blue one.

That bright colorful blue butterfly is awesome. They're all beautiful of course, but wow....the blue is super.

My 13 is posted, come join me?
Happy Thursday.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

That blue one's a blue morpho, isn't it? Parents of Diego fans everywhere know THAT butterfly!

They are simply gorgeous. We get butterflies here, but not that variety. I love to watch them flit around the yard.

These are gorgeous. It makes me want to revisit the Butterfly Conservatory. Happy T13!

Susan Demeter said...

These are gorgeous, and I love butterflies. My sister on the other hand has an intense phobia about them...she would not be so appreciative of this entry ;)

Guess what I posted today? The butterfly was my random theme (oxymoron?). A couple of years ago I saw a green butterfly. It wasn't a moth. Beautiful shots that make me smile!

Karen said...

Just lovely--I always keep butterflies in mind when I'm putting in annuals and planting perennials--I love it when they visit!

kay said...

Yes, we should take time to smell the roses---and---see the butterflies! Beautiful.

Betty said...

I loved seeing all the beautiful butterflies you have shown here. That was a nice take for Thursday Thirteen. I have posted thirteen things about me beginning with the letter "P".

These are beautiful..I've always loved butterflies, they're so graceful.
When I was very little, one landed on my arm and sat there for a few minutes (although to me it seemed like hours)- my father told me it was lucky to have one land on you and I've loved them ever since! I remember sitting so still and trying not to breath!

Thanks for a beautiful T13.

I love those butterflies.
I was sitting on a small trailer near a garden summer 06 and a butterfly came and landed on my hand.
So I just relaxed and let it visit for a while. It was fun to have a butterfly drop in and say howdy.

I really like your pictures on the side bar too.

You might enjoy this post I made. Pictures from a friend halfway round the world, but the poem is mine ... see link below. Have a blessed day!!!

The butterflies are beautiful. We have a Red Admiral that comes to our yard. They are so pretty as are the Monarchs.

Have a wonderful weekend.

To everybody – Thanks so much for dropping by my T-13 this week and leaving your comments. I’m delighted everyone enjoyed the butterfly collages so much. Actually I found these photos at Flickzzz and thought them lovely. I used Picasa to create the collages because I was short on time. I’ve been to some of your T-13s and will visit the rest as time permits (when this old workhorse cooperates). I’m having trouble with Google Reader and Gmail too, but very soon I should receive my NEW laptop and all should be well again. If your email is available, I'll do my best to respond. Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and blessings,

These are absolutely beautiful. Are they your pictures?

Tina Coruth said...


I love these collages! Butterflies are so beautiful!


storyteller said...

Cricket – I’m glad you enjoyed them. Nope … not mine. All I did was ‘collage’ and share them Thursday. They’re from Flickzzz … a site with all kinds of WONDEFUL photos always.

Tina – I thought the butterflies were beautiful too … and using them for my T-13 seemed a great way to share with others. Seems like everyone enjoyed them as much as you and me.

Thanks to both of your for dropping by. Hope you’re having a delightful day!
Hugs and blessings,

Simone – Me too! I’m glad you enjoyed these and thanks for commenting here. I hope you have a marvelous Monday!
