Beautiful, beautiful, be it Monarch or Viceroy!

Always a bright spot to see a nature display first thing in the morning.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice image Kerri. I love the way you capture these macros with a wide-angle environmental portrait sort of feel, but without being cluttered.

I love the lighting! Now you've made me wonder which flutter I snapped a few days ago, lol.

puff, puff, pant, pant - I've been trying to catch up on blogs since my vacation ... spent some time here looking at all your lovely photos and reading your posts. The planthopper and anole really stood out, and you had some great quotes; my fav was the one by John Lubbock.

I think I had a Monarch stuck in the doorframe of my patio door yesterday. I sort of helped it escape before realizing I should have photographed it!!! (ack!)

This is pretty!
