Monarch and Sunflowers


Monarch and Sunflowers
There was a section of the sunflowers at Fausett Farms that was covered in Monarch Butterflies. I don’t know what brought them to that section, but it was pretty well covered. 50 feet to the right or left, not much, maybe a few, but this one section was perfect for them. Sometimes when you are shooting and chasing insects, things come together perfectly for you. This time for me was the butterfly landing on the center flower of 3 isolated flowers. For me it was a perfect addition to a nice composition without the butterfly. Only a few more days of shooting left at the farm, so if you live nearby, get there soon.
