  I shot this photo at a butterfly garden at an individual's residence in Carolina Cove on Lake Livingston. The family planted butterfly friendly flowers to attract butterflies, and it worked! They were EVERYWHERE. There was also an ample supply of big, fluffy, bumble bees. YIKES! Stay tuned for more butterfly shots. ☺
