Not just for the birds…

Look closely and find the visiting Monarch Butterfly who is probably fattening up for it’s loooonnnnnggg migration to Mexico for the winter. Montrose Harbor’s migratory bird sactuary is a respite for all travelers. Copyright 2020 Pamela Breitberg
Autumn is a great time to photograph Monarchs. They move slowly and rest often. This one feeds and rests on some Purple Aster. Copyright 2020 Pamela Breitberg
Painters would approve of the touch of complimentary color orange of the Monarch butterfly to the blue/violet shades of Asters. This touch adds just the right amount of tension, aka, life (pun intended) to make the image interesting. Copyright 2020 Pamela Breitberg
One more image of a Monarch among the Asters. Gotta treasure nature in Chicago before winter puts them all at rest or on vacation. Copyright 2020 Pamela Breitberg
