I was lucky to have this lovely visitor yesterday morning! The butterflies have been abundant on the butterfly bush this year, but I have not been outside with the “big camera” and the tripod when they have visited!
This Red Admiral butterfly was most photogenic, and it is the winner of the week!
Now, on to the weekend… which just flew by, didn’t it?!
I sewed another pair of Rose Pants which I had hoped to wear with my newly finished Early Bloomer. But, when I tried it on with them – it just looked frumpy! Curiously, I think it is too long! I am not quite sure what to do about it – or rather, what exactly it needs to improve the fit. Perhaps the pants just aren’t right so I am going to try it with a tunic today to see what I think. My fear is that the fix means ripping it back and removing some length. Grrr!
The Neville House (aka Woodville Plantation) was so much fun on Sunday afternoon! I loved having a little local history lesson along with the opportunity to see a house that was built in 1755!
But, what about you? Did you all have a good weekend?
I did indeed. I love the butterfly-I’m hoping when we finally get to doing something with our backyard I can add plants that will attract them. Happy Monday.
Love your butterfly pics – very nice.
Maybe early bloomer would be good with leggings? (if it is on the longer side) Hoping you don’t need to rip back.
My weekend was good…busy, but good! The summer seems to be flying by, doesn’t it?
Thanks for sharing these — it’s such a treat to get to look at a butterfly up close!
I had a good weekend, but it was too short because it was filled with too much activity. I’m hoping next weekend will be more relaxing!
Your macro shots just keep getting better and better; these are all lovely! I’m sorry to hear about Early Bloomer and hope you figure something out. Keeping my fingers crossed that you don’t have to rip back!
I haven’t tried to photograph any insects or moving things yet – good for you for capturing the elusive butterfly!
Love the butterfly shot, Kat!
Too bad about the “frumpy” fit… I think that sweater NEEDS to be on the short side for the proportions to work. I know it seems counterintuitive for we middle-aged folks to be wearing anything “cropped” — but it seems to work! 😉
Lovely photos! I’m sure you’ll “fix” the sweater… take heart!
