Citrus Butterfly

There are many butterflies in the garden.
This is a citrus butterfly which has been very accommodative in allowing its photos to be taken from various angles.
It takes several weeks for an egg to eventually become a butterfly but  it survives only about 5 days in this beautiful state.

Happy Family

This photo came about because I found two heart-shaped potatoes.
Since they looked kind of lonely, I added an onion, a garlic and some bird's eye chillies.
Don't they look like a Happy Family now posing under a crystal tree?

I am entering this photo in GGW Picture this Contest.
The topic of the contest is "Lighting : A Closer Look".
If you look closely, you can actually see the reflection of this Happy Family.
