Blue of the Forest.

Hello welcome to a new photography that's going to be photographs with the theme of Blue. Now the first two photographs are very special. The photos below are a blue egg shell of an baby Robin, that I found on the ground while I was out in the front lawn taking photographs of the wildflowers that were blooming out.  

Now I've also have made a information card to go with the box for the blue egg. I did it so I'll remember the day I found it, the basic information and where it was. It's also good to put it up here on the blog post for you to know about the egg a bit more.
Now following up with the story of this egg, at first I didn't think it was a real egg at first. I fought it was some left over Easter egg decorative that probably had washed up through the ditch by the house. But from looking closer myself and asking my mother about the egg, It was definitely real.
 I had luck on my shoulder to find this egg shell on the ground of the front yard, however I want to give a (disclaimer) to anyone who curious about finding any bird egg shells. Please do not take any of the egg shells out of the nest, it can become a danger to the natural state of the nests and the fledglings. It's better to not disturb the parents and their young, just for your curiosity of seeing the egg shells yourself. Let the parent birds take care of the shells on their own. Sometimes they'll flick the shells out or they would usually eat the shells for calcium.
Well moving on from the eggs, I have a photograph of a little guy that only comes around during the late spring and summer. The bird I'm recalling is the Indigo Bunting, a species of bird that only comes to our back garden once a year.
Well we are at the end of this blog post and the final last two photographs are going to be about flowers. These little blue flowers are Persian speedwell, there were tons of them out the in the front yard. (These are also the ones I was talking about earlier on this blog.)
I thought these blue flowers were really beautiful and since most of the photographs I taken lately have been with the pigment of blues, I felt these would go nice with the other photos.
Well hope you are doing well today and hope you have enjoyed this blog post.

Flowers of the Bright Morning Day.

Hello everyone hope your doing all well today! Welcome to this new photography blog that's going to be about the past few events that have happened recently.  So starting off with the first event, my family and I went on our usual trip out around the local city earlier this month. However this time we pulled over by one of the parks that's in the city.

There were many flowers growing at the park and one of these flowers is this one below. Which is a (Possible) Calendula Flower but I'm not to sure what it really is at the moment. 
While above the bundle of flowers there was a really fascinating statue of two bronze Pelicans. Which was quite beautiful and also does represent the state I live in, Louisiana.
Now moving on, about week after that trip, I was at home doing my chores and while I stop to talk to my mother about something. Just from the glance of my eye, this Tiger Butterfly flu right past the kitchen window and laid on the wildflower tree beside the house.
This was the first time I actually got a good amount of photographs of a species of Butterfly, without having any over exposure or to much motion blur, because the butterfly would usually flutter around to much.
Yes also, the full name is the (Papilio glaucus) Eastern tiger swallowtail if you want to know.
Well the last two photographs for this blog are from this month and last month. Their are more of a moody theme to them both, then the rest of this post but I felt they still could fit in this blog post for today.
Anyway I hope you have enjoyed this weeks photography blog and I'll probably make another photography post possibly this month or the beginning of next month.

Well farewell everyone!

Butterflies of the Spring Season.

Hello everybody hope you all are doing great today and welcome back to a new blog post. That's dedicated to the species of  Butterflies and Moths I've taken photographs of in the past and present time.

Well the first butterfly in this post is probably the most fascinating one of the rest, as it's a new species I've not seen yet before in the backgarden and with my best knowledge I believe it's possibly a (Limenitis arthemis) Red-spotted Purple Admiral, but I'm not a Lepidopterist So I'm not to much of an expert.


From all of my research it's a Polytypic species of the North American Brush-Footed Butterfly, it is also a mimic of the poisonous Pipevine Swallowtail. Since of it similar coloration from the looks of the Swallowtail, it can be protected from any kind of predators. 

Now these photographs bellow are going back a bit, the species as many might know is the Luna moth (Actias Luna). The adults are strongly attracted to the light-mostly UV wavelengths. While Also adult Luna moths have vestigial mouthparts and can't not feed, so they live only for a short life span.

While the male Luna moth are strong fliers and can go for a long distance to find a female Luna moth, who gives out a attractant pheromone too attract that male moth to where they are at from a far distance.

Well here's the last set of photographs and they are photos' of the Giant Swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes). Who is another species that I never seen come in to the backgarden before. Yet what I don't understand about this butterfly is why the one tip on the left hindwing, is missing. Maybe a bird tried to grab it or something? but I really don't know, mother nature has her way I guess.

But all in all, this majestic beauty was sure something. Quite huge I have to say, it flied past me twice and it nearly scared me to death! Yet I'm starting to get use to getting more close to these beautiful creatures.

Thus this is why this blog post was dedicated to the butterflies and moths that I've managed to take photographs of in the past and recent time.

Hope you've enjoyed it and farewell everyone!
