A Monarch Butterfly & A Ladybug

Oh me – Oh my!
This is a first for me. πŸ™‚
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. πŸ™‚ 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! πŸ™‚

    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! πŸ™‚
      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.
