Beauty in my backyard

I love, just love butterflies and when I went out to our backyard to escape the sickness going on in our household since last Friday-(a stomach bug that is just lingering) I saw all these beautiful butterflies in our backyard.  I ran back in to get my camera so I could get a few pictures.  I love to photograph them-they have such beauty.  I think God hand paints the wings of each of these beautiful creatures!

Thankfully I think we may finally be on the mend.  I will be so glad-I feel like I need to bleach everything in the house and I am really sleepy-all I did the last few nights is run from one child to the next with a trash can so we could run to the bathroom.  Thankful that God is healing them all and that I was well enough through it all to take care of everyone, even my poor sweet hubby who caught it.

On this Pathway-

I'm just now beginning to feel a little better, after 6 days of yuckiness. How do you get that close to take pictures of these beautiful creatures? I know that God hand paints their wings with His fingers. He's so beautifully creative.
