A Monarch Butterfly & A Ladybug

Oh me – Oh my!
This is a first for me. :)
I was happy as happy can be
that I caught the lovely monarch butterfly.
I noticed that there was a ladybug in the shot too.

    I had to come check out your butterfly :). Just wonderful and the ladybug (I love ladybugs) would have been easy to miss, there in the grass, clever of you to catch it also in your beautiful photograph, RoSy. :) xo

    Monarchs are amazing. My grandson just read a book to me about their migration. I enjoyed seeing your monarch today.

    I am always thrilled when I can get a butterfly to hold still long enough to take a shot. Nice capture RoSy! :)

    Morning Rosy. I loved this. Wouldn’t the butterfly and the ladybug make a cute children’s book? Hugs, Barbara

    A super shot RoSy, one to be very proud of! I guess the trick is to lie in the grass and wait…?

      Thanks Ute! :)
      Oh goodness – you should have seen how excited I was when I took the photo.
      I looked at the viewfinder & it looked pretty good.
      I was keeping my fingers crossed that the image was truly clear when I transferred it to my computer.
