One very yellow butterfly

This photo is from our last butterfly walk (hike) of the season. I love this dudes eyes. This is a Sulfur butterfly - very yellow and beautiful. ❤️

The video today is a little different (I think I say that too often). This video was shot indoors at the wonderful Festival of Trees in Sandy, Utah. Funds raised at Festival of Trees are a “A Gift of Love” to children at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. This hospital has done so much for my granddaughter and the family. She has Cystic Fibrosis, and the doctors and nurses at Children’s Primary have been a big help in difficult times. If this holiday season is not your thing, then please, don’t watch this one.

I could not believe all the trees. Amazing. Enjoy!

On August 7, I posted photos of this species of butterfly. The ‘Question Mark’ and the ‘Comma’ butterfly are so beautiful. Such a cool design, and they really look like a leaf. Outside of the Monarch, this is my favorite. Read more about these beautiful creature here!

The spider and the butterfly

I love this photo of this Monarch, but the spider it the upper left is also interesting. He kind of jumps off the screen. I really didn’t notice him until I was editing the photo. I’m fairly certain they see each other, but maybe it does not matter .. it makes for a great photo.

What is cool about this photo is how the spider and the butterfly are about at the same focal length, so they are in focus, and the depth effect on the background is really great. That makes the spider pop even more, and really make the photo.

When you go on a hike, specifically to observe butterfly’s, you go where they are .. and its the same place where you see wildflowers and nature!

We took another butterfly walk on Oct 1st. We included a lot of photos, and they are included in this video:
