Madison Indiana Photography

More Monarchs and Skippers

Here is one  more from last summer, I shot all these little guys along a major highway in Southern Indiana just outside Madison. It was in one of the highway right a ways and they replanted it all in blooming wildflowers and milkweed for all the butterflies that were migrating thru the area.

The field was teaming with butterflies and moths, finding a subject wasn’t the problem it was just trying to get one to sit still for bit that made it problematic !!

I was after the Monarch Butterfly that happened to be migrating thru this portion of the state  and there were many in the field.  I was able to pick and choose which ones I wanted to set up on. There were also many other moths that were making their way thru the field  and I was able to photograph them as well.

The photographs I am sharing came from that field and I can’t wait till late next summer to get back out there and try my hand at photographing these beautiful little gems. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the images !!
