Shutterbugs' Showcase

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I started this as a place for folks to show off their favorite photos in one place.

Scenic shots, portraits, "artsy" stuff, post-processing successes, micro or macro subjects...anything in good taste goes.

 

I'll share a couple from my "backyard"....

There are variants, but it appears to be one of the Blue Morpho butterflies.

The Tiger Swallowtail in my pic doesn't have very prominent 'tails'.

 

The other "critter" in my post isn't a butterfly at all, but a hummingbird moth.

Your moth is really pretty, and well named!

We have hummingbird moths out here too. I thought they were some kind of drab hummingbirds but, my sister says they are moths.  Who knew?

Forgot to say  the photos on here are beautiful.  I just have a point and shoot digital camera  - it's old and worn out.  If I ever win the lottery I will replace it. I guess it would help if I at least bought a lotto ticket.
