Back at the Butterfly House

I was able to go back to the Butterfly House at the Life and Science Museum with my mentor Al D.

The conditions that day were overcast and with rainy conditions. So we decide to do the butterfly house for this outing.

At the beginning before we entered the Butterfly House we had to warm up our equipment so it would not fog up when we both did our macro shots in the butterfly house with butterflies.

For some of my shots at the butterfly house I lined up different composition of the butterflies by using different angles to use for the butterflies either drinking or getting nectar from the flowers that are in the butterfly house.

In this composition, I lined up the butterfly along with water droplets in the background to make it look very cool than my others I did last year at the butterfly house.

Some other compositions,  I did in the butterfly house , included butterflies landing and lined up with different surroundings in the background to make it look also very different from the other photographs I did in the past here.

In this photograph another butterfly had landed  so I had another opportunity to use my creativity skills in photography to make it look very different than this photograph on the left.

If you have not been here before at the butterfly you should check it out sometime and you will encounter many different butterflies that are from around the world.

Right Sunrise conditions at Jordan Lake plus good birds

Today I did a sunrise shot with my photography mentor who seemed to be chimping some open his photos today.

This is a Great Blue Heron I took during the sunrise at Jordan Lake Today. We spotted a pair of them doing territorial stand offs which was impressive to photograph today as well.

This was the when the territorials between the two Great Blue Herons were fighting between which territory belonged to them. I got many good shots of this.

This is also a pair of Black Voltures that seemed to be enjoying this beautiful morning grooming and just hanging around the side of Jordan Lake which I also got many shots of them doing their grooming styles for the day.

The other photos I got included a swallowtail butterfly, bees  and a new stump I got there today.
Here is a bee on the same flower that before the swallowtail was on.
Heres the swallowtail on flower that the bee was on.

Hatching of Prey Mantis!!

Hey Hey its AL back with an exciting news from my house today!  I have successfully, I have had 1 prey mantis egg sack today that hatched finally . I put 4 up in February 2020 and one hatched today which was amazing to watch and I got many pictures of them hatching from the egg sack today.

These are chins baby matins that recently had this morning and I got several different shots of them playing with each other after they were born out of the egg sack.

I have been waiting many years for the successfully hatching and it finally happened today! I got some portrait shots of them as well when they emerged from the egg sack as well.

I am looking forward to documenting and photographing the Chinese Mantis in the different life cycles this year and hopefully I get some more hatching pictures this week.
