Monarch Squadron

Butterfly, Butterflies, Monarch, Monarch Butterfly, Purple Aster, Flowers
All three of these monarch butterflies are in flight.  They were circling, and eventually landing and feeding on, the purple asters in a vacant field near the building where I work.

I didn’t see a lot of butterflies this year, but when I did, it was all within a few weeks at the end of the summer. This photo was taken in late September.

In the interest of full disclosure, you should know this is a composite image.  I combined three separate photos – each with one butterfly – to create this image of three butterflies. They were all photographed exactly as you see them…in the location that you see them…just at different moments.

Mushrooms On Wood

Mushroom, Mushrooms, Tree, Toad Stool, Toad Stools
On a hike through the autumn woods, I thought it was odd to find these mushrooms growing out of a fallen tree. (Or are they toad stools?) In any case, they intrigued me.

Fall Floral Outburst

These festive wildflowers were growing on a bush at the edge of our property.  I don’t know what kind of flowers (or weed) they are, but they were some of the last blooms of the fall.

Inclined to Fall

This fall scene was spotted in the waning days of a Wisconsin autumn…the days when more leaves were on the ground than on the trees.

Pheasant Profile

Bird, Colorful, Pheasant, Ring-necked, WildlifeThe colors and intricate plumage patterns found on the ring-necked pheasant make it one of the world’s most handsome birds.

I snapped this beautiful specimen last Saturday.  I spotted him in the ditch along the road.  This time of year, it is common to see pheasants roaming the countryside in our area or Northeast Wisconsin.

Ending On A High Note

Leaves, Red, Fall, Fall Foliage, Autumn, Fall Colors
When this photo was made, most of the leaves in the forest had fallen. These red leaves were some of the last hold outs. Even though their days were numbered, they were making the most of their time…going out in dramatic fashion…in a blaze of red.

Pheasant Friends

Pheasant, Ring-necked, Birds, Wildlife, Colorful
I was driving home yesterday afternoon and I noticed a flash of color in the tall grass of the ditch along the road. I pulled my camera out of it’s case and doubled back. When I got there, these two, gorgeous, ring-necked pheasants were moving in the grass.

When I first spotted them while driving by, they may have been sparing, but now that I’m closing in they decided to head for the hills – literally.

They ducked into the very tall grasses (taller than me) that filled the ditch. I followed, crossing the muddy ditch water, hoping to get a clear enough view to snap a good shot. Beyond the tallest grass was a very steep hill. I chased them up the hill expecting them to get spooked enough by the pursuit to just fly away. They didn’t fly and I kept following.

I could usually see one or the other moving through the brush, but never in an area where I could get an unobstructed view. Finally, a little further up the hill, where the cover wasn’t so thick, I was able to snap a couple of frames. They continued to move and soon were back into thick brush, now among trees where I couldn’t follow.

As I always suggest, if you like this image, you’ll love the larger version – available by simply clicking the photo.

Guarding the Peace

Lighthouse, Algoma, WI, Silhouette, Sunrise, Lake Michigan
On a very peaceful morning, the Algoma, WI lighthouse stands at the harbor entrance, watching over a peaceful Lake Michigan at sunrise.

The early morning clouds and contrails created an interesting backdrop for the lighthouse.  In fact, almost too busy.  What do you think?
