Top 10 place in Macro Winged Creatures in Backyard Macro & closeups Group 27th June 2010
2nd place in Butterfly, Freedom Challenge in ‘If it doesn’t belong group’ 19 April 2010
Seconds after this Monarch butterfly emerged it lost its footing and landed in a heap on the garden. Fortunately I was there at the time and gave it a twig to climb onto so it could hang naturally for the wings to develop and dry normally.
Now it’s ready to take off for it’s first flight….
