Photo Friday: To Know a Male

September 21, 2018

Many people still get confused with how to tell a male from a female Monarch butterfly.  All you do is look at the bottom wings.  If there are two black spots along the stripes, it’s a male.  Those spots are for the pheromones.

Today’s shot has more to do with timing than anything.  I love seeing what appears in waves right before it curls over.

I’ve seen numerous street vendors, however, the way her outfit matched the top two totes really caught my attention.

I love how the bricks, on this sidewalk, have been cut into straight edged shapes to fit around the round shape of the light post.
