Butterflies and Bees
I enjoy taking macro shots of butterflies, bees, insects etc. With a lot of trees in bloom, it's not hard to locate butterflies and bees this time of year. These are a few I took today. More will follow hopefully. I think I only have one shot of a bumblebee. It was on a Redbud tree. I took several shots but most weren't that good. I'll get better ones later. The butterflies are Eastern Tiger Swallowtails. If I remember correctly, males are yellow and the dark colored are female, but females can be yellow also but can be differentiated by tail coloring.
All of these are on Lilac blooms.
