Out photographing in the breeding grounds of Monarch Butterflies near Millicent in the Limestone Coast region tonight.

This small butterfly (Lesser Wanderer’ – Danaus chrysippussat) sat calmly and quietly while a fellow photographer gently lifted the stem up towards the light.

It reminds me yet again of how beautiful delicate and amazing nature is if you just take the time to look around you….

Thanks to Amy and Tayla for the company.

Canon 7D – Sigma 120 – 300 macro lens.
ISO 250 – Focal length of 300 at F 5.6 – shutter 1/400th.
