  1. I’ve got nothing against butterflies, but the scientist in me cannot help but question if pesticide use has actually boomed in this decade? Not to argue that we aren’t effing up the planet and all that lives on it though!

  2. Beautiful photos. It is very sad that we are destroying the earth just for pure entertainment without thought that without a healthy planet there will be no entertainment or life for that matter. Think of the future generations and what we are leaving behind. Hope for a return in the numbers one day. Thank you for sharing.

  3. great shots amy – and I enjoyed reading the comments about the way we want blooms like botanical gardens and all that – got me thinking some more – and one thing I did a few years ago was I went for indigenous plants – or tough varieties that were made to be more hands off.

  4. Excellent shots, Amy! 🙂

    I’ve noticed (over the years) that there are far fewer butterflies to take photos of than there used to be. Years ago, I would take photos of Monarchs and Viceroys mating (often); now one is lucky just to get a shot of one.
    We have to do far more. I, among other things, belong to the Sierra Club and suggest the same to others. 😉

  5. Great photos, Amy, and thank you for encouraging people to do things that will help the monarchs survive. It is one of my passions. I found eggs all over my milkweed last week. I hate the thought of losing these amazing butterflies forever. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤

  6. Two beautiful shots, Amy. Love how you captured the bird balancing that bit of food – or stone – in its mouth. You can even see a bit of fuzz along its neck, very well done. That butterfly shot is marvelous too. Beautiful bokeh in the background. You do have a way of capturing animals and insects 🙂

  7. The butterfly shot is a stunner, Amy! I didn’t see it as I whizzed past in the Reader the other day and left a ‘like’. I try not to do that because I always miss so much but just occasionally, if I’m pushed for time.. 😦 Has it stopped raining there yet? It was ‘cats and dogs’ when I saw it on GP at the weekend.

  8. Both of your photos here are really perfect, Amy. It’s not easy to get such clear photos when the wildlife are moving about constantly. Thanks, too, for the reminder about supporting our monarchs before it’s too late. 🙂

  10. So sad to get those alarming statics under these wonderful photos,dear Amy.Perfect timing and amazing detail in both photos,but after reading the article I was really upset as there is a dramatic decline in the monarch population.They might get rich corps without effort but this is at the expense of several species in the kingdom of animals ~ insects.Thank you that you’ve connected those extraordinary photos with the hot issue 🙂 ❤ xxx

  11. I know,all of us should help the situation,and it’s not only that those chemical products badly affect any living creature,it has to do with the water under the soil and the natural tanks that are poisoned too.Thank you dear Amy 🙂 xxx
