Bees and Butterflies: 28 June 2021

This is someone new. I love her striped abdomen and green thorax. She was fairly petite as well.
We’ve seen this little lady (or her sisters) before.
This was taken September 2019, but never posted until now.
Another capture from September 2019.

Last but not least from September 2019.

So far this year, I’ve only seen a couple tiger swallow tails. I’ve not seen any monarchs. Last year, I only saw a couple of monarchs. I’m really worried about these larger butterflies. There can be no doubt that they are in decline, at least here in Maryland. I don’t usually plug charities on Beautiful Photographs, but I can’t help but put in a word for the Monarch Butterfly Fund.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
