IPhoneography Challenge: Nature


Good morning from a dark Hastings.  The sun hasn’t come up yet .  So that means the days are now getting shorter, and the nights longer.  It is also cooler in the mornings too.  Summer is on it’s way out.

Another week, another iPhoneography challenge hosted by Lens and Pens by Sally

These photos were taken with the my 4S outside our local bank.  I had just pulled up in the car park when I notice this monarch butterfly and immediately got out the phone and started taking photos.  It didn’t like what I was doing so flew off.  I started to put the phone away when it came back again.  So out came the phone again.   Much to the disgust of my son who was with me.  He shrunk down into his seat and wanted to disappear.  He was so embarrassed.  Luckily for him no-one was around to see this.

The second time around I was able to up close a bit more using the zoom on it to get these photos.

Here are a couple of great blogs to check out.

  1. I like the way the light hits the butterflies–giving them a platform to shine. We are in the depth of winter, so it’s lovely to see your winged friends. Mostly, I’m thrilled that you have monarchs. Ours fled for the south in the autumn, and we had a low turnout for the year. I’m hoping for a comeback this year. Happy Phoneography Monday.


    1. It is getting harder to find them too. We are encouraged to grow swan plants, which the butterflies lay their eggs on and they eat to grow. But they can decimate the plant rather quickly. 😀


      1. We grow milkweed and swamp milkweed. It’s their job to eat the leaves and lay their eggs on these host plants. The plants are at the end of their cycle, so it seems nature knows what she; doing.


  2. Wonderful shots! My family and friends have to suffer through me pulling out either phone or iPad to take photos all the time. I was fortunately enough to get some shots of a monarch this summer. When I was a child, there were so many of them. Perhaps not only a different time but a different place matters. Lovely editing as well.
