The talented photographer has captured some amazing shots. You certainly have a grouping of shots to be very proud of Yves. In this one my eye is drawn immediately to the light shimmering on the wings of the butterfly. From there my heart is happy with the beauty of colours and subjects in the shot. Awesome Yves.

Thanks for the hearth touching words Debra. I do realise how good some of my shots are. Of course these three shots will go on my wall of fame as a master serie Never forget that those beauties comes with the relationship I am developing with Mother Nature. I have no doubt it would not exist without it.

I really like the eye contact and the crisp detail in this one Yves. Both the butterfly and aster stand out very well against the solid background colour and it makes for quite a striking image. Well done Yves.

Thanks Heather. For that one I prepare the shot. I choose that particular flower because it was quite alone in the frame. The guy was moving from a place to another. I waited few minutes expecting he moves on that flower, and he finaly did. Only once in a while he open its wings flat. I waited for that unusual pose.

The odd shot. Just about starting my safary at the Drummond dam on the Magog river in Sherbrooke. Mother Nature granted me with a 5 minutes photo shooting at the beautyful azure butterfly. The guy was calmly moving on a patch of wild asters. He gave me all the poses needed for a delightful moment.
