Clickin' it Up a Notch in September

I know I just posted this photo as my favorite for Project 366 Rewind's challenge, but that's because it is!  :)

Macro Monarch - favorite
I struggle with macro photography, probably because I don't have a macro lens and just use macro filters on my 18-55mm lens.  So I must force myself to play and learn.  Which is what I did this day with one of the Monarch butterflies we raised.  They are sort of captive until their wings are dry enough to fly away, so I always try to get a photo - usually a full-body shot.  But this day I thought I'd break out the macro filters and see what I could get.  This gorgeous female was patient with me while I played and when she'd finally had enough, she flew up into our maple tree.  She's been tagged so hopefully we'll be able to track her journey to Mexico.
