How Can I Keep From Singing

I was lucky to capture a little white butterfly when out photographing my favorite lily. The shot below has a tiny flying beetle near the stem of the bud.

 

added later: I think the link I have used may not be the same lily.

 

 

I heard that the wonderful singer, Jean Redpath, has passed away.  RIP

Wonderful post!
Mary MacADNski: I loved that the Jean Redpath fit in with this day. The second Youtube is especially good.
the first thing that struck me when i opened this page was the sound of trumpets Mary... the butterfly was very nice to drop into your picture... two beautiful images....peter:0
Mary MacADNski: Thank you, Peter. It is my favorite lily.
It's a real beauty and your images are wonderful with the butterfly and the beetle! RIP to Ms Redpath - enjoyed the videos!

The butterfly fits in perfectly
Mary MacADNski: I had so many good lily shots but then from another angle - there was the butterfly.
Oh, and I just love The Prairie Home Companion! I checked to see if Jean Redpath was in the 2006 movie (which we have) and it appears not. This is a lovely tribute, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: She is wonderful. Youtube is full of her greatness.

Wonder- wonderful, dear Flower-Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Music Mary too, Philine. More than flowers I'd say.

Absolutely superb, Mary - and a butterfly, too!
Mary MacADNski: Th butterflies were so special - all within a couple of hours in two days.
gorgeous, I love white flowers
Mary MacADNski: These are the palest yellow. I have identified them properly on other posts.
Wonderful Mary! The butterfly is e real bonus here.
Mary MacADNski: I had better lily shots but apon discovering he butterfly, I had to put it here.
They really are magnificent flowers Mary, just about at their best I would think.
Mary MacADNski: I HAD TAKEN THE BEST INSIDE AS YOU MAY BE ABLE TO TELL. a FEW SCARS ARE EVIDENT. Sorry , Brian.
It's obviously a great time for lilies on PEI smile
Mary MacADNski: This was a while ago. I waited for Lisl to get back before showing butterflies.
I confess to not knowing Jean Redpath but she had a fine voice

Some fine flower pictures to go with the music
Mary MacADNski: I thought all you English people would know her. I believe I have a song of hers about North American Indians with a great tribal beat.

I enjoying the singing whilst looking at your image; the two are complementary. The lilies are very pretty.
Mary MacADNski: This is certainly not the best shot of the lilies but that butterfly had to come along... I love her voice.

I love the butterfly in flight, but also the way the two open flower heads have their backs to each other as though they have just had an argument ;o)
Mary MacADNski: I have picked flowers from this lily already, before the shots. You can see the scars. I got several insects in about an hour - two days in a row.

What a beautiful set of images, well done
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Robbyne. They keep coming, eh?
This is absolutely gorgeous, Mary. A likey.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Beverly. The first ones were picked for the table. New ones open up overnight and a fresh one greets you in the morning.
