Macro Monday: Strolling the Garden

Strolling around the garden with my camera. The fence on the west side of the garden is blooming with trumpet vines. I haven’t seen a lot of butterflies this spring and I am not sure why. Could it be the drought? or the large number of wasps patrolling the gardens looking for caterpillars? I’ve seen a few Monarchs and Swallowtails.

  1. Great shots….I will be happy to send you some of our rainfall…we are getting way too much of the wet stuff…another week of showers.

    we don´t have that kind of butterflies so it is nice to see it.
    I also like the last shot with the little waterdrop in the pipe.

  3. These are terrific macro shots – wonderful details. The selective focus and timing in the last photo is fantastic.

    Happy Macro Monday

      Wow. Thank you. I had fun with the last photo – it took a few tries to get the drop of water just right. 🙂

    Gorgeous photos! I love the swallowtail one, and I agree that the last photo is just beautiful.
