2016—Orange Is The New Black

It looks like the next show I’m going to have to start binge-watching is “Orange Is The New Black.”  While that has nothing to do with the actual subject of this blog post, the name came to mind when I walked outside with my camera to watch for backyard birds and this orange and black monarch butterfly flew into the yard.   Appropriately, it flew to the butterfly bush, landed, sipped some nectar and flew off into the neighbor’s yard, and then, almost immediately, returned to the butterfly bush in my yard.  It did that twice, giving me ample opportunity to get up close and personal with the butterfly.  I had the 300mm lens with the 1.7x teleconverter and high speed crop set so I was able to almost fill the frame with the subject.
