Rick-

It might be early for the milkpods to do that, but it sure is a great photo.

Thanks for posting.

very nice rick, and you are right about the stained glass effect.

our milkweed blooms have been dead and gone for at least 1 1/2 months.. different locales i guess..

Rickst, here in Newfoundland we have had a strange year as well. Spring usually doesn't take hold here until mid May, this year it started in late April, the result is that all of the plantlife is early. We have plants at the back of our yard that usually bloom in early August, they bloomed over a week ago and are now starting to wither.

Great butterfly shots. Our windy summer has meant I haven't had many opportunities to shoot butterflies (usually they are shooting past screaming for help). We don't get monarchs but we do get some beautiful tiger swallowtails, however this year I haven't seen any. I hope I get a chance soon, before the season is over.

Sorry about the rambling. Your work never fails to impress.

Ira
