  •   imjustabill @sidk27 Thank you very much!! 1w
  •   imjustabill @effortlessly_eclectic Thanks so much! I really love the quote too :) 1w
  •   lorashank Nice shot, Bill 1w
  •   howlandstudio Awesome. I'd guess this one was just hours away from emerging by the looks of it. What did you do with it? 6d
  •   imjustabill @howlandstudio Thanks, Jennifer! I've been raising monarchs at home for the last two years. I always bring the the caterpillars and chrysalises inside for safety and then let them go after their wings have dried :) 6d
  •   howlandstudio @imjustabill I've done some of that as well, so crazy the transformation processes! Do you tag them before releasing as well? The numbers of monarchs have been dramatically low here, (in New England), for at least the last several years, (I know the numbers have been down everywhere πŸ˜•). 6d

One of my Christmas presents this year was a macro flash ! It's the Venus Optics Macro Twin Flash, a crazy tentacle-looking set up that lets you move and adjust the flashes are any way that you want! Until now I've always shot with natural light only, but so far I'm loving it!!

imjustabill Blossoms Bokeh and a Baby Butterfly

My monarch caterpillars at home have completely devoured all the milkweed. Literally nothing left but bare twigs!! I had read that you could feed caterpillars cucumbers or butternut squash in a pinch, and it worked! Saved about 15 caterpillars from starvation 🍽 The weirdest part was seeing the orange caterpillar poop !!!
