Shot these in the Butterfly Garden, which is unconfined space, at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. These are Queen Butterflys, which land and sit because (according to the docent) most birds cannot distinguish them from Monarchs, which have a bad taste.
Shot this little guy in the hummingbird pavilion at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. They’re loose in there, so it’s still a very challenging environment.
I’m doing the nature challenge on Facebook, and thought I’d echo it here. The Oldest Keeper was the first and here’s the second.
This is the earliest digital photo that I consider remotely a “keeper”. It was taken from the top of an RV somewhere in Nebraska. The camera was a Minolta DiMAGE S304 with a whopping 3.2MP (2048×1536) and 4x optical zoom. Still available on eBay for as little as $10!
And what are the Sun Tunnels?
