Monarch Butterfly on Purple Echinacea

I originally took this photo on 31 July 2008 but never did anything with it. I wanted to post some more insect photos, butterflies are always nice, and I’ve been hearing about the usefulness of the Ranked List option on Virily so I decided to kill two birds with one stone and do some experimenting with different edits of this photo.

First, the details about the photo. It was taken along the Chicago’s Lake Michigan lakefront near Foster Avenue Beach in Lincoln Park. There is a small wildflower garden near the beach house. I used a Panasonic DMC-FZ50 camera without any close-up attachments or filters to take it.

    • Thanks, Carol. Although I wasn’t able to get any photos this year, it seems that there were more than I’ve seen for some time now. Sadly, not anywhere near as many as when I was younger. I remember one day in college when I looked out my dorm window and saw a tree that must have been covered with thousands of them.
