His soul shall dwell at ease: and his seed shall inherit the earth...Psalms 25: 13

I shot this macro on September 4th. I am missing the butterflies as we haven't seen any around lately. I think they are resting from a busy summer. Our Zinnias are still going strong!

Thank you so much JanElle (Heather) for the nomination.
Thank you also Regenia Brabham for the second nomination...

    This is such a marvelous photo, Andrea. It is perfect! I love the dof, and the wonderful colors of the butterfly. We still see the occasional butterfly, but our hummingbirds are gone. Tomorrow I will bring in their feeder....always a little sad to put it away for another year.
