Many of my fellow bloggers have shared how difficult a time they had taking photos of butterflies and bees. I too had some difficulty getting both of them to stay in one place long enough to get a decent shot! I made two trips to Shelby Gardens in Sarasota to visit the butterfly garden just hoping to catch the perfect shot, with no luck. When we were in Colorado visiting our daughter I finally had some success. Bees were plentiful in my daughters yard flying from one purple cornflower to another. While looking at the Chihuly glass exhibit at Denver’s Botanical Gardens, butterflies seemed to be everywhere. I was able to take quite a few shots of this Monarch before it closed its wings. Just for fun I decided to include a bee and butterfly that my grandson colored. They were sure a lot easier to photograph!
