Monarch

MonarchTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

The Monarchs were scarce this year. One day we took a walk in some fields known for small birds, dog-walking and off-road biking. It was morning and towards the end of the summer. There was no-one and nothing about and then all of sudden we saw a lot of butterflies. An entirely unexpected pleasure.

    • Thanks. The lighting was great, now in deep winter there is nothing but grey or harsh light.

      • So we have to think about the types of images we can take in such conditions

  3. Monachs remind me of catching butterflies as a child in the ’50’s

  4. Monarchs are getting very rare. I haven’t seen one in 3 or 4 years.

    • We saw only a very few last year. I hear that they expect the numbers to climb this year.

  8. Lovely photo, Victor. I saw my first monarch in over two years this past summer/early fall. Like seeing a friend I thought was lost to memory and…photos.
