The flower a tethered butterfly.”

    1. Thank you so much! I went out to photograph the azaleas, and the butterfly was an extra bonus.

    They make a beautiful pair!


    1. Thank you. Last year we had no butterflies until the month of August. This year they’ve arrived in April!

    Absolutely beautiful photography. Unfortunately, the leaves on my azaleas look terrible after two sets of hard freezes. I am on top of a low mountain near you.


    1. Thank you. My azaleas seem to be protected, and one even blooms some winters! I’m in something of a mountain cove and am surrounded by hills.
