El Tigre

Well, the Tiger Longwing Butterfly that is.ย  More about butterflies, macro photography (and possibly about an epic macro fail if I can bare to show it) and where this critter and it’s relatives were.

F5.6 – 100mm macro – 1/100 – 250 ISO – Canon 5D M3

      Alas, even the macro Queen has her stumble moments and this one still pains me – sigh. But thanks!

      Thank you! I may be calling upon you to identify some that I did not get the names of ๐Ÿ™‚

        No problem, but I may struggle with species beyond my side of the pool ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aren’t they beautiful?! Around here, I only see about one type of butterfly and I think that’s because a neighbor of mine has a bush that attracts them. Otherwise, we have too much greenery in the area and not enough flowers?

      That’s what I want to plant in my yard one day, a butterfly bush to attract them.

        It becomes loaded with cocoons each year and they eat the leaves afterward. Nature provides.

    Amazingly beautiful!

      Aren’t they amazing creatures! Thank you.

        Yes they are! I admire anyone who captures their picture. They won’t pose long enough for me, lol.

        It takes a lot of patience, timing and luck…and often many many tries ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beautiful and Nice to see in winter. Reminds us that it everything is bleak.

      Thanks. Will be posting more and then probably other bright things to bring some color into the cold winter.

    Love your butterfly pics, Teri. (I’ve seen many of them on Instagram.) The past couple summers, I’ve seen an increase in butterfly traffic in my yard. May the trend continue …
