Monarch Butterfly Ready For Its Close Up
So just yesterday I posted that I was seeing only one Monarch per day in mid-September. As if in response to a customer complaint, Monarch Central seems to have dispatched four Monarchs to ensure that I don’t feel neglected. These were displaying themselves in the front garden when I first opened the door.
Shortly afterwards Judy came back from her book club and decided to shoot some video. She is still getting used to the video function on her camera, especially the manual focus (she has found the auto focus to be unsatisfactory).
Anyway, here are a couple of short videos she made. I like that they give you a good idea on how the Monarchs look when they are feeding. An odd thing, though, is how my quiet neighborhood sounds like it is right next to a highway.
The Bumblebees also get into the act, but that’s fine. Cinema verite!
