Butterflies

This week at "Less Is More" the challenge is a theme...
being "things that move"....
my first thought was something with wheels...
but after spending about an hour in the garden trying to take pictures of the butterflies.....
that soon became my inspiration......
because, boy can those things move....
I tried for at least 30 minutes to get the Monarch butterfly picture
he (or she) was annoying to say the least....
it seemed that he was always behind me....
and when I turned around he would fly off...
but I finally managed a pic!
I colored my butterfly with "Copics".
 This was another butterfly I took pics of...there were several of these!



I also have a few pics of the caterpillar........
