Our beautiful Monarch Butterfly…endangered! The Queen of them all amidst stunning orange blossoms! Inspired by the beauty of nature and a desire to help all endangered species for the love of our children.

What beautiful photographs I’ve seen in the past few days! I feel incredibly humble showing my own photos. I’m a beginner and opened to any comments or suggestions as I feel I have much to learn. I’ve always enjoyed taking photos but for the past 9 years, my camera has been mainly focused on my 5 lovely grandchildren. I’m so inspired by what I’ve seen on this site… I can only hope your amazing collective talent rubs off on me!
