Gorgeous shot! Congratulations!

Write your U.S. Representative and ask her or him to support the Save America's Pollinators Act of 2013. This bill will direct the Environmental Protection Agency to suspend registration of neonic insecticides, which are causing serious harm to birds, butterflies, bees, and aquatic life.

What a pleasant surprise!!! Thanks so much, everyone, some of you twice, for all of the kind words & favorites!!! Thanks so much to the Approvers, for the AC recognition!!! I greatly appreciate it!!! This was my first week finding Monarchs all year, a very welcome sight...

Betsy, thanks for the reminder, that was another key factor that I forgot to mention... Those pesticides/herbicides many are using on crops are terrible on the population Milkweed, as well as many other Wild flowers, I am sure =(

HEBRICIDES used on extensive monocrops are killing the milkweed which used to grow on the borders of fields. The monarchs depend on milkweed only for raising the next generation, which proceeds north. The mature butterflies feed on flower nectar, but the absolutely must have milkweed for their larval stage.

About gardner48197

7/2014: Greetings from Michigan, where we get quite a wide variety of weather changes throughout the four seasons! Originally I found this site, for the weather, and the photos kept drawing my interest! Decided to get my first digital camera in 2010, and have since upgraded to a Nikon P530. Truly an amazing, eye-opening hobby! This is a great community, so many excellent photographers and friends, so little time! I do read and appreciate every comment and email that I receive! I would like to thank everyone who contributes, for all of the great inspiration and feedback! Sometime down the road I would still like to get a DSLR camera, but for now I just I hope to send a small view of life from the Great Lakes State. Home of the University of Michigan Wolverines! Go Blue! -James
