Wow, I think I'm finally done!

I'd actually have a lot more photos if I hadn't used my UV filter. It made so many of my shots grainy to the point that I deleted them. With the plethora of Queens I collected I don't feel like I'm losing anything.

You wanna see 'em bigger? You know the drill.


This is my last blog entry for the latest batch of pix! I shot over 1400 in all! Oh, well, I haven't done the goats yet, but they aren't so many. So, you know what this means, I can go shoot more butterflies! This has been great practice for the soon to arrive Monarchs! Glad I found out about that UV filter before their arrival.








Above: As in the previous entry, I have nothing but love and wonder for the tattered butterflies who are still out there pollinating for all they're worth!



Above: I shot his face but it didn't come out well. He was HUGE! I wish I had something in this pic for perspective.






Above: I found this little Wave Moth (unsure what kind of Wave Moth) exceptionally hard to shoot. It wouldn't let me get close! He probably would have fit on a quarter with his wingtips just inside the edge, or near enough.
