cheery and bright

Colorful, vibrant and cheery lantana flowers that lined the side walk are for the eyes to FEAST on. As i begin to photograph them a happy butterfly is as enthusiastic as me as it began to fly from one flower to another. It also feasted on their sweetness feeding on nectar.


The butterfly is so elusive as i try to take some photos. And almost missed it.


Yey, gotcha.. i almost missed again.


Oops, it flew… it’s almost out of range.


And finally, the butterfly is in the range and i guess this is the best shot.


I looked so silly hopping from one flower to another just to take some photos but it’s fun.

Happy Wednesday! And to add brightness to your day, here’s Ashton my laptop buddy for today showing off his whiskers and his itty-bitty tongue. Please enjoy!

As some of you know, my kitty Star was hospitalized recently due to anemia. She was there for 2 days and 2 nights. Now that she’s home and doing well and her appetite is back to normal, i am happy. The happiness that i’m feeling now is as VIBRANT as the colors of these flowers.

cee’s fun foto challenge: color of my choice is PINK

Pink is one of my favorite colors. It is the universal color of love and beauty. Homes decorated with pink flowers provide the aura of calmness and relaxation.

For this photo challenge, i’ve chosen this bi-colored white and pink carnation. It has white petals with soft pink edges that resemble a beautiful lace pattern. At first glance, it doesn’t look real but the flower is really fresh and vibrant.
