      Thanks Irene. I thought making the background gray helps to highlight the subject.

    This is wonderful Lovely captures of these little critters. They are on decline here this year, hopefully we see more butterflies next year, it was a wet summer here.

      There’s been a huge decline in butterflies and insects here too. It was good to see small clouds of Monarchs float by.

        Oh that would be soooo cool. There have been Monarchs here, but I haven’t seen one this year. Toronto is so very awesome they have made a Monarch butterfly ribbon of Milkweed, as the butterfly can only sense them within a certain radius, and by continual plantings, the Monarch’s range can be extended. Thanks for sharing these wonderful images.

      Yes. At our butterflclub I learned butterflies are rarely netted these days. Some are tagged for scientific research. Killing them is a no no.
