p.1 #1 · The Monarch


When I planted the Mexican Heather, I did not know what a nature show I would be treated to.
I have had the pleasure to see the monarchs go through the truly amazing stages of their life.
I have also had horror to see the lizards wait in anticipation for a meal and sometimes succeed. I feel as if I have become "mother nature" shoeing away predators trying to protect the newly emerged.

Here are just a few shots in the stages and life of the monarch.

As always, your comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Birdie

Ohhh my now this is a set to lay eyes on Birdie!

#1 elegant.
#2 Wow, if this doesn't look 3D I just bought an airbrush, I find it fascinating on how you do highlighting on water drops to add dimension..............you have given me a model to try to master. This shot has it all Birdie, anticipation of life, dimension, depth, detail color and a gorious BG bokeh and there isn't even any eye contact
#3 Absolutely fine by me, V-shape with a nice lead up to those eyes showing that special detail that you captured ever so nicely! Nice color depth
#4 another great one!

Thanks, those were fun and most enjoyable!

You must have been a photographer in an earlier life Birdie. You have improved immensely in a short period of time. This is an excellent set ~ Ron

A very well presented post, Birdie. The images look clean and smooth with the second images being on top
To be able to see a caterpillar change itself into a chrysalis and then reappear as a beautiful butterfly is shear magic! One of the most remarkable thing in nature. An experience you'll never forget.
Monarch has a short life, two to six weeks. That is probably the first generation and they will die after laying eggs for the second generation. The fourth and last generation will migrate to Mexico and will live more than six months, until it is time to migrate back North and start again the first generation of Monarchs. Amazing!

I had a feeling this was going to be a stunning post when I saw the title and the photographer and I was not disappointed!!! Birdie, your macro work is always superb and this post demonstrates your considerable skill. Excellent set, you sure have set a high bar
