What a fantastic photo, the Monarch looks part of an exotic flower at first glance (or maybe Ive just had too much wine at the moment :-))

23 Aug, 2009

 

LOL...., works for me norfolk, got any of that wine left to share with a friend ?....:-D

23 Aug, 2009

 

It was all the wine tasting at the local produce show, I cant handle drink in the day time :-))

24 Aug, 2009

 

Oh well...., it was a nice thought ! I have to work tomorrow anyway..:-(

Thanks Jacque, what a nice thing to say !

This would make a fab framed picture...blown up & on the wall. Just great.

Thanks Fluff, it would be nice to look at during the winter months, when I'm stuck inside .

Brilliant photo! it looks as though the monarchs wings are transparent and we are seeing the flower through them, beautiful :-))

26 Aug, 2009

 

I can see it too, now that you mention it Bornagain, that does look cool !

Great shot, Can't believe these little delicate wings fly from Brazil & mexico all the way up North America. Amazing hey.

28 Aug, 2009

 

Thanks Doon ! It certainly is amazing, I can just imagine how big a set of wings would have to be to get me that distance ! the word 'delicate' certainly wouldn't be an adjective they would be using to describe them...lol
