Beautiful butterfly and flower. Love all the colors.

I couldn't decide for theme day and am leaving it up to the votes. I narrowed my down to seven. Yikes! Hate to say I just couldn't pick one. Come take a look and put your vote in.

That is a great photo! I still have yet to get a butterfly (or any other insect) to pose for me. :)

Butterfly on a flower - what could be more beautiful?

Sorry I wasn't able to visit your blog sooner. I was in transit the whole of yesterday. I am now back in Norwich after the most fantabulous time at home in Manila.

Happy New Year to you and everyone you hold dear!

I look forward to visiting your blog more often this 2008. And you're welcome to mine, too! For some reason, my link was not included for participating blogs for the 1st of January 2008 theme day.
