an offer I can't refuse

I got an email from Amanda the other day.

Ian and I went to the butterfly pavilion and insect center in denver on Saturday and I just thought i'd send you a few pictures showing you how wonderful my pictures turned out. You're not the only one thats obsessed with her camera ;)
Then I got a text message saying that I could use the pictures for my blog since I was feeling uninspired. So I decided to take her up on her offer. Here's the pictures she sent me.
 It could be my eyes but the pictures look a little on the blurry side here. The ones she sent me aren't though. Maybe I fuzzed them up when I shrunk them to post. Well either way thank you Amanda. And she's still the bestest daughter.


  1. Ooh, those are Hibiscus! Lovely photos :) So kind of her to do that. Somebody send me photos! LOL!

  2. I don't care about Fuzzy!!Hahaa...I LOVE these! They scream, SUMMER!!
    Sweet night to you Miz Ann!

  3. they do look a little fuzzy...but they are still beautiful nonetheless!

  4. They are a bit fuzzy, but they are very beautiful too. How fun and how nice of her to help you be inspired. I hope it worked.

    Have a terrific day. Ear scritches to Duke. :)

  5. So pretty! I want to place my snout right in there!

  6. Woof! Woof! She sure did took great photos. LOVELY Hibiscus Photos ... one of my mom favorite flowers. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  7. Those are beautiful photo's! I have a hibiscus plant but it doesn't get flowers very often, not quite sure what I'm doing wrong. Might have to check the internet!

  8. Those are so pretty! It was nice of Amanda to send you such lovely photos to inspire you!

    Hugs to Duke!

  9. I don't know about fuzzy, but I really like all of those colors.

  10. I don't think they are fuzzy. The colors are so vibrant and I just love the butterfly. Beautiful shots.

  11. A few years ago our zoo had a butterfly exhibit where you can go in and interact with the butterflies. I remember that we spent well over an hour in there; with my daughters having the time of their lives with the butterflies landing all over them. I still remember a bright, neon blue one that landed on my eldest daughter's arm. Of course, I didn't have a camera (what else is new).

  12. Sadly there werent that many butterflies but the one in Niagara Falls omg there are TONS of butterfies there. This one is small compared to the one in Canada as well but I dont care cuz at least I got to see butterflies and pretty flowers. My favorite flower pic is the Orange one btw....Glad you blogged my pics mom and today I dont feel really the bestest at anything so thanks for saying.

  13. I love butterflies...i remember taking the kids to a butterfly farm a few years ago and there were huge exotic butterflies which kept landing on the girls head...maybe they thought the blonde curls were nectar...they were fascinated!

  14. Watch out Ann. Looks like Amanda can give you some competition in the creativity department.LOL
    Have a good weekend.

  15. The pictures look fine to me. Did you have Duke clean your glasses?

  16. I love hibiscus plants. They are beautiful photos. Thank you for sharing them, Amanda.

  17. Hibiscus blooms are so beautiful. I always feel like I'm in a tropical spot when I see them.

  21. I could reminisce the day I went to a butterfly garden last year. It was a wonderful experience to see beautiful and lovely butterflies flying around the garden with their soft and delicate wings. These photos remind me of that unforgettable moment.
    Nice post! I am glad to know that your daughter Amanda gave you the inspiration. ^_^

  22. The photos are great. I can't decide which is more beautiful -- the flowers or the butterflies. Yeah, your daughter is a keeper. ;)

  23. june zach I wish we had a butterfly garden around here. I would love to go to a place like that.

    Leeuna she's a keeper alright. Almost makes me forget the days when she was growing up and I wanted to give her
