Macro & Mellow Yellow Monday *Red Spotted Purple Beauty*


While back at my pond last weekend, I spotted one of my favorite butterflies (yes, I realize that I call ALL the butterflies my favorite butterflies... how could you possibly choose among beautiful butterflies???). This is a Red Spotted Purple butterfly. Yes, that's its real name; I didn't make it up, although I am known to make up my own names for the critters I see.

The weather is finally working in my favor, and I'm able to get outside to take pictures. The entire summer, it was either too hot for comfort, or it was raining. I'm actually glad for fall this year! Now, I can get outside and get photos! That's what nature photographers do - they don't sit around on their modern sofas; They get out there to see what beauty nature is going to provide them to capture.
