The Winner, my Birthday boy and Butterflies galore!

The lucky winner of my Trick or Treat Giveaway is... are you ready? get set... wait for it...
Gin, of Keepsake Moments. Congratulations Gin and a big thank you to everyone who played my game. I wish I could give you all something, because I cherish your friendships and love you all. Also, today is Gizzy's Birthday! Yes, his Birthday is November 1st and today he's 12 years old, but he doesn't look a day over five, look at that face:

I took these photos on Friday afternoon. I could not believe all the butterflies that were out on that Lantana bush! There were so many of them, but they fluttered so quickly that it was difficult for me to get a good shot of more than two together, just look at this many can you see? Gizzy sat patiently on the swing, watching me and waiting while I snapped photos. I could not believe all that action. I thought I was at Callaway (Butterfly) Gardens.

I also saw a spider, a big ole bumble bee, a honey bee and a couple of different moths, but they were all too quick for me.

Today is your Birthday, Gizzy! Happy Birthday to you!

You are such a good boy!

Again, Congratulations, Gin and remember to give me your address!

Ohhhh PRETTY! I love those butterflies, we had them at the butterfly garden up here in Hershey. I think the orange ones are Julias, and the one with the white on the bottom wing is a Gulf Frittilary, one of my very favorite butterflies. You got some great pictures of them! I miss working at the butterfly house :)

And Happy Birthday to the Gizz!!!

Samantha G said...

Oh! I'm wrong. I think they are actually all gulf fritillarys in these pictures :)
