Every time I see them I wonder, "will you be my last?"! Great photos!
Hi Mon@rch,I too wonder! I find I am taking more and more photos. It is as if I cannot get enough of them. Today after the rain stopped I had six in the zinnias. These were fresh ones too. I bet they make it to Mexico.Thank you. I have hundreds maybe thousands, of Monarch pictures.Sherry
Thank you for your amazing butterfly photos ~ we will enjoy them while we wait for their return.
Dear Deb,The butterflies have been fun all season! I always "know" they will be back but spring seems so far away when it is cold and snowy outside! I was reading in my November journal from last year and butterflies were still about so maybe I have another month. It all depends on the weather. I hope the birds are as fun this coming winter as they were last year. I was so excited every day to be outside with them.I have a few winter projects I want to do too. I could put butterfly slide shows around the house on digital photo frames! I have one in the kitchen and it is very fun.Sherry
I think I'm seeing a very large Viceroy...no Monarchs. Can you show us your garden in a photo? I'd love to see it from your deck.
*****Oh my goodness, I forgot to say that you are a Butterfly Woman! I think I said that before though. :)Lovingly,*sprite
Dear Mary,I will see what I can do. My deck is about 30 feet across and is two levels, maybe 14 feet deep. The gardens are all around the perimeter of the house and slowly I am putting in gardens around the property line. The back also has two patios and a large vegetable garden that has paths running through it! So lots of gardens! From my deck I can see all of the backyard gardens but my camera cannot, at least not all at once. This has given me an idea. Maybe I could do a series of photos. Humm... I will see what I can come up with. OR....I could get a wide angle lens! That would be very fun!I already want a macro lens. Let's see Christmas and birthday are coming up!Viceroys do look so similiar to the Monarchs. Maybe you can get a photo and I could take a peek. I do know the difference now that the Viceroys are in the gardens.Sherry
My Dear Sprite,Thank you. The Monarchs are the largest butterfly now in the gardens. I have not seen a Swallowtail for a week!I am smitten with all the butterflies. On sunny warm days I usually have a few hundred butterflies. The Skippers are a huge part of that number. Now that the season has changed my numbers are decreasing. One of the many reasons I will miss them is I like all the wings. I have noticed the Sparrows have increased in number. Lots of wings coming and going from the bushes and tress to the feeders. On the wings of joy,Sherry
