Photography – Monarch Butterfly in the Backyard

Monarch Butterfly Backyard Color 450

Photo Shoot Location: Winchester, Virginia

Photo Shoot Date: August 8, 2009

Photo Shoot Details: During the evening I often spend time outdoors with my two daughters (one and three years old). This particular evening we were chasing moths around a bush in our backyard, when a monarch butterfly happened to flutter on by. It would land on flowers nearby, and fly away once my three-year-old rushed over to see it. She said that she wanted me to take a photograph of it, so I did not want to disappoint her. I waited for the butter fly to land, and snapped the above shot.

I also took the photograph and desaturated all of the colors aside from the butterfly’s wings to further show how bright and colorful they really are.
