    Butterflies, butterflies EVERYWHERE!!
    There's a tree or a couple trees in the neighbors yard that just has hundreds of butterflies that always flock to it. I was outside and noticed all of them and HAD to go and get some pictures. They come out black, but they are actually a dark, dark purple. They fly all over my yard, but don't go into the trees here like they do across the street.

    Here they are coming in for a landing. Look close...all the dark spots are butterflies.

    Barb, I usually have a few try to dive bomb me on the way to my mailbox. I told Courtney to run in the house and change her shirt into something with alot of colors on it so they would land on her, but she wouldn't. I have had a few land on my shoulders at times. Guess they get tired of flying and just need a short ride. lol

    I think tomorrow while I am out and waiting for Courtney to get out of work, I'll bring my big camera with me and take some shots. It's supposed to be a nice day, so will hit the beach. Maybe can find a sea cucumber and get it's picture. So, I guess I should bring the underwater camera too, huh?

    I'll bet that looks gorgeous!

    You're taking your underwater camera to the beach? Do you think you will find a humuhumunukunukuapua'a to take a picture of? :wink:

    I dunno Celeste. I might find a trigger fish. lol I'm not planning on swimming, just maybe wading in the water a bit. If I do, will leave the big camera hidden in the van and take the underwater one with me.
    Hopefully it will be a nice day. It's rained on and off today. We needed it. My yard is brown and ugly!
