Too Close
No cropping done here. Silly goose would not let me get far enough away to get more of the bird in the frame. I'd back off and she would follow me. Had to pull my zoom all the way in and take what I could get. She was probably looking for a handout. Pretty blue eyes rimmed with orange that matches her bill. That bill reminds me of orange sherbet.

Mallards are so common I usually overlook them. Then a moment like this comes when the light hits the duck and water just right to bring out all the beauty that was there all along. Stress? What stress?

I kept seeing something tiny moving in the clover but the winter weed was hiding it. Finally a bright little head emerged and I got a shot. Cute little chipping sparrow.

Shortly after I started taking wildlife photos, this took place in my front yard. Shot thru my window. Captured a juvenile cooper's hawk that had just downed a white-winged dove. Includes mantling behavior and defeathering. Last 2 shots are of the crime scene left behind. 39 photos in all once I get them all uploaded.

The lake is famous for these winter visitors who are so used to people that they perch very close to shore. Each storm takes away the old logs and brings new ones which are promptly claimed by as many pelicans as can fit.

Releasing the Final Queen
My final new butterfly actually cooperated and stayed on the red pentas.
Photo 2:
Beauty in the Pentas
I finally got my shot of one of my new butterflies surrounded by beautiful flowers. It was so much fun to get the opportunity to learn more about the life cycle of the Queen butterfly.
(Full disclosure: 5 minutes after these photos, a paperwasp attacked the butterfly and stung it to death. I found it on the ground with the wasp still stinging it. The butterfly could barely move, then it apparently died. I shook off the wasp and there was a burial at sea, flush. I was a bit upset after having raised it from hatchling, but it is part of nature)

The Last One
When my 2nd pink chrysalis and last Queen eclosed, I found it earlier this time. The butterfly was out but the wings were still crumpled and needed to be pumped up.

This beautiful junco was kind enough to hold a pose right outside my window. Every winter a small flock takes up residence in my yard and stay until mid Spring.
Photo 2:
Black Throat
I must have moved because it spotted me on the other side of the window. Was nice to get this pose because it showed off the black throat I had not noticed before.
@joecoolbrew would this be an immature male slate colored junco?

Photo 1:
A Mind Of His Own
For the second time I tried placing a newly emerged Queen on flowers to have a pretty background for photos. For the second time, the butterfly had its own agenda. He took off from my finger before I could even get him to the flowers. He landed on the side of the house and chose that as his perch. At least he was eye level.
Photo 2:
Bright New Wings
He was absolutely stunning when he spread his wings wide open.

Photo 1:
He is Ready to be Released
I missed the eclosure of my first pink chrysalis Queen butterfly. He did it quick and had his wings pumped up before I realized it had happened. The orange stain on the papertowel is butterfly meconium. "Meconium is the leftover part of the caterpillar that was not needed to make the butterfly. This is stored in the intestine of the butterfly and expelled after the butterfly emerges."

Photo 2:
Eager To Take Off
I took the habitat out front and set it down on the porch. The light breeze and sunlight seemed to excite the butterfly. He started climbing up the side of the habitat. Very obvious it is a male with the scent spots showing.
