Static butterfly

Yesterday the butterflies were plentiful and active. Today there are fewer butterflies and they’re less active. This allowed for a closer shot than yesterday’s photographs. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Garden flower

I do not know what type of bush grows this flower, but it is growing in my yard. I don’t recall planting it, so it may be a ‘weed’ or something bird brought in. Still, it’s not unattractive when it flowers. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Lichen

Blue butterfly

The third decent photograph I captured today in my back yard—thank you social distancing and isolation?!—while the butterflies enjoyed the flowers and sunlight. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Orange butterfly

The second of three decent photographs captured today in my own backyard. Not being a butterfly/moth expert, I’m currently assuming this is a butterfly. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Trio of butterflies

It’s been a while since I pulled the camera out of the bag and today there were dozens of butterflies in the back yard. It was a beautiful sight to see while being confined to my own yard like most of the world currently. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Suburban Bird of Prey

I managed to capture this photograph of a bird of prey—I am unsure exactly what kind of bird this is—over my house in suburbia. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Kookaburra

Bee on flower

Those bees sure are fidgety little fellows when you’re trying to capture a good photograph. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.
