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:

We took part in our second ‘butterfly walk’ of the summer yesterday. It was hot, but we saw a lot of beauty. This is either a question mark or a comma butterfly .. either way, it’s a beautful creature.

Here is a little help if you want to study up.

As I posted yesterday, we setup a YouTube channel. The tales.photos YouTube channel will include video footage from our various outings. It could be from local photo hikes, or more extensive travel footage.

For a long time, I have wanted to share more than just still images. This will allow Teresa and me to do that. There will be a weekly video. You can subscribe and be notified when new videos are available. I hope you enjoy this as much I we will enjoy sharing.
