a gorgeous pose. I love coneflowers because of their longevity don't you??
There's just something about Echinacea isn't there. Makes the butterflies even more beautiful.The shots with the green and gold bee are incredible!
They WERE posing for you! Do you talk to them? They don't pose for me so well!
Such pretty pictures of your critters Susan. They do love the coneflowers.I do not blame them I love the fragrance of them also.
Sue~~ This must have been one hungry Lady! In my garden they're hyper bordering full-on mania. You've got the touch, girl!

good morning for greecevery good photo
Sue, great pictures as usual. we don't get many butterflies around here, don't know why, as I have plenty of flowers which would attract them.
Very cool shots!!I've been trying to get a butterfly shot for awhile, as this year I'm seeing more of the, darn things won't sit still long enough!Love the colours of your butterfly and it looks great against the flower..
Even if not participating in Critters, I would like to congratulate you for your lovely pictures. I just love buuterflies.
What great photos!!!
Sue, What beautiful photos you take! I cannot get such close-ups unless the critters "pose." ;-) Have a great week!
How did you train that gorgeous painted lady to pose in so many different positions? Are you the butterfly whisperer?
Great photos, loved seeing your butterflies. My coneflowers and phlox are blooming but we have hardly any butterflies. The cold and wet have been really hard on them.Marnie
Those cone flowers are critter magnets, aren't they!? Great shots of your visitors. I saw the first goldfinch on our cone flowers Saturday, so I guess the seed development is far enough along to begin tempting them. ~~Rhonda
