Waiting for a Butterfly

What the caterpillar


calls the end of the world



the master

Black Swallowtail

calls a butterfly.  (Richard Bach)


We've been waiting 6 1/2 months.  

Since September 9, 2012 - the day we brought the caterpillar home.


And the wait was so worth it.

Linking with Project Alicia, In the Moment with ..., and Live and Love ... Out Loud.

Before you go, make sure you check out the giveaway I'm hosting for a FUN children's book ... Hey God, I've got some guy named Jonah in my stomach and I think I'm going to throw up!

Love this! And I bet you enjoyed photographing something other than a monarch!

Wow, Kimberly, how amazing to watch God's creation change from a fat caterpillar to a light butterfly. Love it.

You asked about backlighting my oxeye daisy. I only shoot natural light (because, honestly, I don't know how to use a flash), but can enhance using Capture NX2 (I guess it's like Lightroom). It has a neat feature called color control points and lets me adjust colors, contast, etc. on single points. It's my favorite feature in the program. I use it a lot on baseball photos in order to show eyes beneath baseball caps.

Here's a link to show you how it works: http://www.capturenx.com/en/lessons/color/index.html

This is absolutely fascinating. What a gorgeous butterfly and totally different from the monarchs. Do u live in CA? I did a whole series of pics on IG (kellykardos) about my 1st monarch raising series. Oh it was such an event. I'd live to hear about your monarch experience. iamsasyk@aol.com thanks for popping into my blog.
