I had a heck of time photographing today! The temps were great, but then there was the wind! It isn’t easy capturing flowers when they are swaying in the breeze!

Luckily, the gusts would calm at times and I could get a few shots in here and there.

Guara, otherwise known as “Whirling Butterflies“, was certainly living up to its name as the long stalks were easily blown about, making the blossoms appear like a swarm of pretty pink butterflies.

Since the real butterflies have been few and far between, this is the best we can get!
