Over the years I’ve been hiking and doing photography, I’ve had a number of insects fly by or even land on me or my camera. It’s difficult to get a shot of a dragonfly that’s landed on the top of your lens or a butterfly that won’t hold still. But every so often, they’ll play nice and I can get a decent image.
On a recent hike I waited for several minutes for a Monarch to finish wandering and land somewhere long enough for me to get a picture. It chose a pine bough above me so I wasn’t able to get a clear shot of it’s entire wingspan, but the angle I had to work with made for a pretty image in the end so I wasn’t disappointed.
Until next time…
