Butterflies and Hummingbirds

I spent a good chunk of this morning processing images of butterflies and hummingbirds from yesterday afternoon. Mylitta Crescent Butterflies in the last stages of their flight were visiting my flowers. Later on I was photographing Anna's and Allen's Hummingbirds in the corner of the yard. Those darn hummingbirds are addictive! I really enjoy photographing birds and other creatures in my backyard. It's amazing what you can find there. God's love and blessings to all, chris Butterfly images created with a Canon 7D and a Canon 100-400 IS lens with a 36mm extension tube added for close focusing.
