After yesterday’s exciting offering of two Fiery Skippers caught in flagrante delicto, today’s photo may seem a bit humdrum. If that is the case, I apologize; however, I think this photograph has its merits. I like the shadows on the Monarch’s wings. Also, if you look closely, you can see the tip of this butterfly’s proboscis. That’s a rare sight. Additionally, I like the contrast of the pink background against its wing.

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. View more posts
