Just emerged Morning Cloak Butterfly captured by Z 8 / Z105f2.8mc
Well, emerging from your chrysalis into a garage wouldn’t do so I moved it to safe place outside. I got Sharon and we stood there and watched it. That’s when I said, “gee, maybe I should photograph it?” Heck, I’m so well known for my macro work. Not! It was fun trying to get the shot as the butterfly slowly pumped open its wings and antenna as it swung in the slight breeze. It’s then I remembered why I’m not a macro photographer, things move. As it did though, those brand new scales on its wings glowed in the light and I got hooked. 878 photos later, I thought I’d better get back to work. But want a cool moment. I checked on it a couple of hours later to find it had flown off. It was very cool and rewarding to see more new life at The Ranch!
