On The Farm

Still have not been too motivated to photograph. These are a few from around the farm the past couple of days. A couple stages of a Monarch Butterfly caterpillar next to a grain of rice. A couple stages of the butterfly developing in the chrysalis. When looking for eggs and caterpillars in the field you are looking for these tiny things smaller than a grain of rice. It is shock and almost makes you holler when you suddenly see this big eye of a tree frog looking at you. It has happened a couple of times…

At The River And First Monarch Butterfly Release

The action was slow at the river this morning. Did get a few shots of the two Peregrine Falcons that are working the area below Kentucky Dam. An immature female and a mature male.

My “Little Woman” released the first Monarch Butterfly she raised yesterday also. A few macro pics of the tiny egg. The caterpillar emerging from the egg and eating the egg shell. The caterpillar will go steadily and go in to a chrysalis stage. Missed the butterfly emerging from the chrysalis yesterday morning. It was already out when we first saw it…
