Those are very pretty!
Golden Finches do indeed love thistle, they will also hang from the stems of Coneflowers and eat the seeds till they are stuffed.
The butterfly shots were really good, I love butterflies and with your pictures I was able to see ones we don't have here. Last but not least....A dragonfly!!!! Very cool capture!
Morning joan and linda....did you notice how beat up most of their wings are? Must be tuff being a butterfly.
I noticed that, same here with the ones that flit around, but they are still beautiful and I always like to think that if you get touched by one, or one lands on you, that is God saying hello!
Great pictures! You mentioned your cattle, why don't you post some pics of them, I love cow pictures!
I love beautiful depth of field pictures. Real nice. Thanks.
