TWENTY MINUTES IN THE GARDEN – AUGUST 14, 2017

I have been watching a monarch butterfly in my garden for weeks. My mother in-law asked me to get a picture.Well they have eyes in the back of their heads, or some kind of super hearing. Only once did I get close enough. I was using my wife’s macro lens at 1-1.

I was trying to follow guidelines to great macro. For one, the subject doesn’t fit in the pic. They also don’t hang around very long. Trial and error should be my title because today I just took the pic available to me.

Happy with getting the monarch shot after what seemed like 3 weeks, I took these pictures:

Anise Hyssop….Hops…Dill Seed tops, just because they rhyme. The last one was tough.


I think the lesson should be just have fun out there.
