While in South Dakota, I went to a Butterfly House and Aquarium. I have many, many pictures, but blue morpho butterflies have been my favorite since I was little. They’re so vibrant. I had never seen so many blue morphos in one place before! Unfortunately, these four pictures were the only clear ones I could get, as they insisted on constantly flitting about the place. And I’m pretty sure the last three pictures are of the same butterfly. Which is fine by me. I was happy to have at least one poser.
I know I said a couple weeks ago that the Midwest is completely dead during the winter season. Well. Nature proved me wrong, as it so often does.
Since the Midwest is completely lifeless in the winter, I went through some old pictures. I thought I had posted this on here before, but apparently, I haven’t. This picture was taken back in 2014 at my grandma’s house, and it remains completely untouched. Somehow, my old digital camera picked up the rich colors when it’s normally particular about being bold.
Today’s Photography Tuesday brings us ice crystals off my Wrangler from a blistering cold of a morning. The way they formed reminded me of lichen, and lichen is one of my favorite things to photograph.
