While mowing near our vegetable/flower garden, I noticed the asters were really busy with butterflies and bees. The bees were busy and kept about their pollen gathering and for the most part so were the butterflies. There were two Monarchs-Danaus plexippus building their stores for the long trip ahead.
And one very aggressive Orange Sulfur-Colias eurytheme that wasn’t having any interlopers, chasing even the much larger monarchs if they got too close to its feeding station.
These were shot with my SX-60. Figured I should use it for more than the moon. In both cases it did a decent job of capturing the detail and managing the direct midday light.
