and anoles eat flies.
Skinks have recently begun roaming about the house and chasing the anoles away. Not sure what they eat. They aren't very friendly.
A luna moth got into the house several weeks back and it took hours to lure it back outside. I snapped a few photos of it but they look like every other photo of a luna moth, so nothing special.
We're getting more snakes this year. They've been harmless, so far.
The hawk attacks have been worse too. I've seen a dove and a goldfinch carried off.
Lots of spiders this year. Mostly wolf spiders and wild tarantulas.
The deer have been coming around more, as well as foxes.
The wild horses are venturing closer to people.
Probably all related to the dry winter and cooler than normal spring. It was also a wetter than normal during spring.
on a telephoto lens? I had pretty good luck last year photographing butterflies and such using an extension tube with the 70-200 lens.
with the 4/3 sensor, my 40~150mm becomes an 80~300mm.
Thanks for sharing that effort with us!!! Amazingly gorgeous
The third was, a bunch of other bees and butterflies buzzing and fluttering around, distracting my subject long enough to capture the photo.
May I ask:
Is "sulfur butterfly" the same species as "brimstone butterfly"? An English vs. American difference?
In German we call the latter Zitronenfalter, as a lemon is much more appreciated than that toxic sulphur.
Colias eurytheme: Orange Sulphur Butterfly, living in South America
Gonepteryx rhamni: Zitronenfalter, living in Europe, Asia and Noth West Africa
Thanks again for the opportunity to learn something!
