I'd Be A Butterfly

I was hoping to get some butterfly shots when I went to the Descanso Gardens. There were plenty flying around but only a couple decided not to be too shy. Some of these aren't as clear as I like but I still like them so I'm sharing them anyway (smile). You know, if I could fly I'd be a butterfly.

The butterfly is a flying flower,
The flower a tethered butterfly.

I don't know if these dark ones are moths or butterflies...

Beautiful shots of the butterfly.
Somehow when viewing them I'm reminded of the Butterfly Lovers :)
