    As A Society Monarchs ...

    ... are not particularly tolerant of idiosyncratic behavior.

    "Oh my goodness! Look at that girls. Velma! Velma, stop that. Straighten up and fly right!"

    Wow, nueces snapper, whereabouts in the SW Texas Hill Country did you take those photos? Around Mason, perhaps, or further westward? Did you take them today or yesturday? I'm curious to know because I'm a monarch migration specialist and with the NE winds that were blowing in central Texas yesturday I figured alot of the butterflies would be arriving in SW Texas, though many had arrived 4-5 days ago too. Awesome photos!

    Thanks. They've been trickling through for several days now but today they showed up in hundreds. SW Edwards county.

    Beautiful

    Was that last image also taken with the 75-300?
    Really nice and sharp with great bokeh as well.
