    I spent the day saturday at the home of one of NANPA's featured photographers, whose home and grounds are 63 acres dedicated to "flying jewels." The butterflies were everywhere, and if you needed information about what to plant to attract a particular species, that information was provided freely. The high temps mostly precluded any hummingbird imaging, as they tended to remain in the woods and out of the sun. However, my group got enough butterfly and dragonfly images to last awhile. Here are elevne butterfly images. Enjoy.
