Canon SX40 HS
I was out on a walk in Mullens wildlife area in Boone County, Kentucky. I noticed some young milkweed plants, the only plants monarch catipilars eat. As I continued my walk, lo and behold, what do I spot but this newly arrived visitor from Mexico refueling on purple vetch.
If you do not know about their migration here is a link for more info .

My name is Ron Russell. I have lived in Newport, Kentucky since 1986.
My interest in photography as a hobby goes back to a Minolta camera I found in 1974.I love digital photgraphy because of the freedom it gives me to shoot whatever whenever I want. My Canon SX40 HS is a constant companion.
I’ll add a caption to any photo. Let me know what you want I’ll add it, upload and reply.
