Great photos! Taking this kind of photos take skills and patience, as we all know how the butterflies are “jumping” from flower to flower. You have to be skilled and to have some luck to catch them in one of your photography.

Excellent work!

Nice images. But there are a few that are under exposed, out of focus and flat…Take another look and see if you can figure out which ones…

Lovely pictures of an animals I love a lot. Many arts are dissapearing from my country beauce of exterpation. Not all of those once have been seen here but some of them.

stephanie – I especially love the shots in black and white. I am a big fan of black and white shots. They allow the ptruiy of the moment to speak for itself and your simple and elegant presentation of these moments exemplifies the pure joy of that moment of love shared between the couple. I can’t wait to see more
