Camera Critters--Flutterbyes


I found this great meme called Camera Critters. I love the pictures and decided that with my wealth of critter pictures down here in SW Florida, I should join in but before I do, I must tell you to hop on over to Camera Critters. There you can either sign up for your own post for Camera Critters or see lots and lots of other great critter pics. So, now that you've done that--here are my pics for the day.

A couple of years ago, Mr. Snowbird and I made the trek down to Key West and stayed for several days. While we were there, we went to the Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. I could have spent the whole day in there watching the butterflies, birds and flowers. It was an amazing place. Below are some of the pictures I captured that day. Butterflies are considered critters aren't they???

What beautiful photos! I love birds. I didn't realize the fruit might attract butterflies. I really don't have so many in my garden...

They are really beautiful - any idea what the blue bird it? S/he's a real eye popper - for sure none of those in Michigan!

These are amazing. Much more exotic tahn my own garden birds, but the last butterfly shot blew me away.
