Monarchs

Here are the pictures of the Monarchs from Friday morning. Since I took over 100 pictures, it was hard for me to decide which ones to post and took a little awhile to go through them.









In the morning before I started working, I noticed that the outer shell part of the chrysalises was clear. I got my tripod set up and started my workday. I took them outside, took some pictures and went back inside to work.





















Unfortunately, when I came back out for a break there was one less butterfly. I'm pretty sure a bird ate it.

Your macro photography is so good! The picture with the butterfly on your finger, and the sunspots, is especially interesting!

I will write more soon- I gotta get to work!

Love you,
Robert
