In the size category, butterflies are the other end of the spectrum. Small and dainty and colorful, I delight in watching them flit from one place to another. This particular little lady (I looked it up and found out you can actually tell a male from a female monarch by a little black spot on the back of the wing) started as a fabulous caterpillar who made her chrysalis on my front porch. In the left photo you can see the clear case still attached to my porch spindle as she dried her wings on my geranium. It was great to keep track of the progress of this graceful creature as I waited for the unveiling. AND, she managed to emerge from this chrysalis on the day before we left on our trip! How did she know?
So...creatures great and small...photographic subjects... fascinating subjects. Is anyone else addicted to photographing wildlife?
