Hummingbirds and butterflies -on the prowl at Safari Park

Every year I look forward to the butterfly exhibit at the Safari Park. 
If you’ve never seen it, drop everything and GET OVER THERE!
It’s just heaven to be with colorful butterflies and beautiful flowers!
Each year of course I bring my camera…

But this year in addition to my ‘usual’ butterfly portraits,
I challenged myself to photograph come in flight.  
(Without the help of auto focus, etc — this is me chasin’ them down!)
Here are some of my favs:

But I also let myself have some fun too….

Then we headed out for a walk in the World Garden where I spotted some other flying beauties… 

Ahhhh…..what a perfect day!
