This photo was taken in the town of Mariposa, Ca. I consider these butterflies to be the monarchy of the butterfly kingdom. Their behavior and beauty seem to suggest royalty. Enjoy your day.
During breeding season male House Finches display beautiful red coloring while their mates are less showy.
This is a California Painted Lady dining on the seed pod of a Gillardia (Blanket Plant). The petals had all dropped.
The contrast between the rusty old barbed wire and the wildflowers I feel compliments each other. But of course wildflowers compliment most anything. Have a wonderful day.
I found these two dining on a “butterfly plant” This is one of my favorite butterflies because of their striking yellow color with the addition of blues and orange to their lower wings and “tail”.
I am fortunate to live in an area where wildflowers are abundant and unfortunately so are bugs! But ladybugs are a favorite because they prey on destructive insects. Enjoy your spring wherever you live!
I don’t generally see these guys in my area, but was fortunate to have a pair spend the winter with me. They are entertaining to watch.
I love country landscapes combined with country sunsets.
I am experimenting with a little different style.
