Flock of Fungi

Mushroom, Mushrooms, Fungi, White
Our area received a lot of rain late summer to autumn. That provided favorable conditions for mushrooms.  These are a just a few of the fungi bounty we discovered on a walk through Potawatomi Park near Sturgeon Bay, WI a few weeks ago.

Morning Smoke Signals


Lighthouse, Algoma, WI, Sunrise, Lake Michigan
The dark, wispy clouds reminded me of puffs of smoke hanging over the Algoma, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier. This view was photographed last Sunday morning just before the sun emerged from behind the bank of low clouds to rise over Lake Michigan.

Monarch Flight

Butterfly, Monarch, Flight, Fly, Aster, Purple, Flowers, Wildflowers
A monarch butterfly rises majestically above the patch of purple asters. I snapped this photo in a field next to my workplace. I’d been working on trying to catch the few monarchs I found in flight. Catching one in focus is a formidable challenge because of their erratic motion in flight. This is a view of the butterfly from behind, wings on the downward stroke.

Green-banded Swallowtail

Butterfly, Green-banded Swallowtail, Green Banded Peacock, Emerald Swallowtail, Butterflies
This is the Green-banded Swallowtail butterfly. Some might also refer to this butterfly as a Green Banded Peacock or Emerald Swallowtail. It is common to South Asia, including India and Sri Lanka.

In this image, the bands on the wings seem to be more of a blue color. Apparently the color can vary slightly, depending on the angle of view. From the back, it can seem more blue – from the front it appears more green. As you can see, this butterfly is peppered with green scales either side of the main bands. The coloration is a structural color not a pigmented color. The structure of the scales on this butterfly give it the iridescent green color.

Their main diet is provided by plants in the citrus family. On a sad note, they have a short lifespan. The adult Green-banded Swallowtail butterflies rarely last longer than a week.

I photographed this creature on a recent visit to The Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure in Branson, Missouri.
