My Butterfly Garden, Supporting the Monarch Butterfly!

When I lived in Illinois two of my granddaughters came for the summer.  We did a lot of fun things but one thing that I really enjoyed was gathering Monarch butterfly eggs and bringing them home to watch them hatch, 478 more words

台灣蝴蝶生態遊 (1)

八月應好友的邀請,參加了一個台灣蝴蝶生態拍攝自由行…  出門前才發覺自己器材和技術都不入流,剛好八月Nikon School有一蝴蝶攝影班,於是臨急抱佛腳,報名學習,又在出發前兩天買了一只微鏡,膽粗粗的上路!

可幸這團人數不多,負責開車的文彬師兄是拍蝶專家,一早做好探索的工作,不愁找不到靚蝴蝶,帶隊的Tony師兄又是拍蝶高手,其他團友都是非常專業的拍友,使我在高手熏陶的環境下,得益不少…

第一天我們非常幸運,能淘醉在不同蝴蝶的交尾情懷,看到生命的延續,上帝的創造實在奇妙!

我們碰到很多其他不同的蝴蝶…

在黃昏日落前,我們還能趕得上到高美濕地捕捉餘日的光輝…

非常豐滿的半天,但好戲在後頭,下次再談…

夢... 想... 行...

As this Great Spangled Fritillary butterfly (Speyeria cybele) moved about on a flower, the light hit it in different ways, beautifully illuminating its colorful wings. 8 more words
