Royalty in the Garden

Today’s post features a few images I captured over the weekend of a Monarch butterfly that visited my rural Missouri butterfly garden. I saw a few Monarchs back in late spring, but until this weekend, I had not seen any. I’m hoping I will continue to see them as they add such beauty to the garden! And I’ll have to check the numerous milkweed plants to see if any eggs were laid! Enjoy some of my favorite images:

By the way, please be aware that I am busy starting a new photo project, one that will have me working both days and nights. I’ll share more about it later, but for the next week or so, there will be little activity on my blog posts and social media posts. But if things work out well, there will be some interesting posts coming up!

  • Canon 7D Mark II body
  • Canon 100-400mm, f/4.5-5.6 IS lens
