One of my passions is monarch butterflies. I provide milkweed and flowers for them, raise and release them. These two were visiting my garden on their way to Mexico for the winter. We need to do all we can to save them!

Beautifully done, and so well said Hilda. It is a real pleasure to see you post, and I hope we see more of you here on Caedes. I have a friend who raises, and releases them as well. I love the sharpness and the way their set against the background. tigs=^..^=

Why do the pictures come out square when the lens is round??

Hilda, I saw that this wonderful image is an entry for the "diagonal' contest. A very appropriate and colorful one.
Good Luck with it in the contest.
