  1. No need to change anything, I love the seed pods – every stage. It’s all beautiful.

  2. Well, I wouldn’t rush into any non-butterfly garden posts just yet. I’ve decided to polish my photography skills on my new butterfly garden. πŸ™‚

    Love them, and love looking at others as well as my own.

  3. Nice pic skillz! πŸ™‚

  4. Gorgeous pictures!

  5. We have milkweed in our yard, but I guess it’s too early for the monarch caterpillars in Maine. Last year we got one but I left it out in a rainstorm (it drowned). Don’t tell Rilla!

  6. I love these posts! Great pictures – so inspiring!

  7. Your photos are so beautiful. Do you have a particularly excellent camera?

  8. Hannah, thank you! It’s not super fancy–a Canon Powershot S5. Basically a point-and-shoot with a decent built-in zoom. It’s a little finicky, or else (more likely) I’m not using it properly, because it is very hard to get a decent picture in morning light. But it looooves afternoon light. It’s like I can’t get a *bad* shot after 4pm. In the morning, I have the devil of a time getting it to focus, and it won’t focus on zoomed-in shots at all. I missed a gorgeous shot of two caterpillars nose to nose this morning, one big fat one and one little thread of a guy, because the darn camera wouldn’t focus no matter what I did.

    One of these days I need to take the time to, you know, read the manual and figure out what I’m doing wrong.

  9. They’re beautiful shots Lissa. They’re eye candy. And you know how much I love pretty pictures. That last one especially. Look at those gorgeous locks!
