Nature Photography Day is hosted by Green-Fly Media

I plan to visit Chassahowitzka WMA at couple more times before the Nature Photography Day event to showcase some things we might encounter on the 15th! Every time I go, there is always something to photograph!

First time seeing these clouded crimson moths and very sad that I did. Recently on a trip to St. Pete with a friend, I dropped my camera and broke my 50mm macro lens. Devastated and totally upset ( didn’t want to show my friend how upset I really was), I wasn’t sure how long I would last without a macro lens. Well, Canon doesn’t make the 50mm anymore so I am upgrading to the 60mm, however that 65mm looks remarkable expect for the price tag!

There are plenty of Sandhill Milkweed releasing their seeds right now to ensure there are more nectar opportunities for butterflies, bees and other pollinators.

More flowers are popping up during the summer season. Tarflowers, Florida False Sunflowers, and so much more!

Will post more soon!
