Photo Friday: To Know a Male

September 21, 2018

I took this shot this other day, and looked it up, since I had never seen one before.  It’s a tiger swallowtail.

I have to admit, I love documentary style photography.  It’s the best way to see the beauty of reality.

There’s no doubt great egrets are beautiful, but with a wingspan of 1.7 meters they look even more amazing.

The brilliant male cardinals have been going at the mating game, and all I hear when I walk outside is that familiar call of spring.

This week I was out shooting for my school assignments, when I happened on some cone flowers that were buzzing with bumble bees.  With my love of shooting close ups, I couldn’t resist the opportunity.  It wasn’t part of my school assignment, but you take the shots as they come.
