It's been sooooo long since the last time I was able to take a picture of a dragonfly. The other day one flew into the house and I got it to land on my finger !!! Add dragonfly whisperer to my résumé !!

My first attempt at shooting a starry sky while in Cancun! It's a 15-second long exposure. There was a lot of light coming from the hotels, so I couldn't get a longer exposure, but I like how the sand is illuminated also !!

Here's the Monarch butterfly that I raised from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis in the previous post. It eclosed while we were in Cancun, so I came home to a butterfly fluttering in the sunroom! FYI: Females have darker wing veins, while males have dark spots on their hind wings, which are glands that release pheromones.
