This dude took on a little damage over the cruel summer, but wasn’t about to miss Happy Hour.

This bloom hopper got a round on the house.

…And stood still long enough for a glamour shot.

This one drank itself silly.

…And could barely keep its chin up.

Caught this one trying to belly up before “last call.”

    wow, Honie — these are beautiful! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

      Happy to share 🙂 You too Brigitte.

    Beautiful photos and funny commentary. Last time I was at my grandparents there was about 20 butterflies having a jubilee on the flowers just off the side of their porch. If it hadn’t been 100 degrees with 100 % humidity I would have sat for a lot longer to enjoy them.

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      They are fun to watch and it does seem that they love to play in the sunshine. I can see them from the window in my office. So, I can run out and snap a few shots and retreat back inside when it’s 100+.

    Great shots – love the DOF. Beautiful colors!

      Thank you. There was a humming bird flitting around out there too, alas he was too fast for me.

        They are tough to catch without a feeder:)

    Hi Honie. These are gorgeous photos and love the captions.

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      Hey there Helen. Thanks. It’s butterfly time here in Texas. We’re the last stop on the Monarch’s migration route and our town has a big celebration on Main Street. There’s a butterfly release and even a parade. 🙂

Go Ahead, Make My Day!
