Have a view of my daily photos or photos from my past. We all need to document the world around us visually. What I see is mostly what you get.

Monarch on Task......
The sun was bright and it made it harder to take shots of the monarch. The butterfly wings have a reflective characteristic which dulls out the color in certain light. I finally caught this one on a flower with the butterfly in shadow on the one side. Its has true color in this particular lights.
The monarch feeds with its wings closed on the zinnia flower. I am remembering that they open their wings when feeding on a coneflower. I am still battling the Japanese beetle on the zinnias. They can be sprayed and it takes them out, but I have to keep visiting the flowers often to keep them down. The good thing is that I need to take a camera with me because some sort of butterfly is feeding when I am there. The liquid I spray on the beetles is not a poison so the spray doesn't effect the butterflies.
