Stop and photograph the flowers

We've been very busy in the vegetable gardens, so I hadn't really taken the time to pause and watch the many butterflies that have been feasting from the row of zinnias I planted a few months ago--until today. 

The blooms and flutterbies were so bright, but butterflies are a bit of a challenge to capture because they'll take off about the time you get your camera focused. 

I did manage to snap a few shots that I'm pretty satisfied with, though. 

Here are a few, for your viewing pleasure. 

I was a bit surprised at how many of the butterflies have ragged wings.  I wonder why?  Do they fight amongst themselves?  Did they barely escape the clutches of a mean ol' cat? 

Whichever the case, they are very beautiful!
