Denzils Nature Photo Challenge #13: Butterflies

This is a difficult photo challenge mainly because of choice. I don’t want to leave any butterflies out but if I don’t get tough you’ll be here for far to long. What I have is 1,966 photos in 56 folders, each folder is a different species of butterfly.

What I decided to do is just go through some older photos I have posted over the years, hopefully picking a few of my favourites for you to enjoy.

Last on the Card – April 2023

Last Photo for April 2023

Everyone who contributes their good and not so good photos has fun I hope. I enjoy seeing your photos. Thanks to those being brave enough to show everyone your last photo for the month in its naked glory.
It doesn’t have to be on the very last day of the month if you didn’t take any photos. Maybe it was earlier in the month when the last photo was taken.

So let’s see what you have for April 2023

The rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30th April or whenever your last photo was taken.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments
5. Use the tags The Last Photo and #LastOnTheCard

Here’s mine. Last month an unintentional floral theme, this month, an insect leaning.
