As of July 1 I began posting my daily photos over at my main blog, A Fresh Perspective.
I found the need to eliminate one blog, and since this one came second, this is the one.
I hope you will choose to join me over at A Fresh Perspective for daily photos, photo challenges,
and some other fun stuff thrown in.

ISO 800, f/5.6, 1/250s, 18-55mm lens w/10x macro filter
We found our first teeny tiny baby Monarch caterpillar last evening at the park!  I placed a grain of rice next to him so you can get an idea of just how tiny he is.

For those of you that are new here, we raised 34 Monarch butterflies last summer.  It was like an ongoing science experiment for the kids.  They loved it!  And so did I!  It was fascinating to watch the process.  It is truly amazing how God works.  

I made a photo book out of some of the photos (I took many more that didn't make the book.)  :)  Here's the link in case you are interested in checking it out ...

And I realize this is not a prize-winning photo by any means, but it is definitely my favorite photo of the week because of what it represents.

Can't wait until I can show off some Monarch butterfly photos!  Stay tuned!  :)

Tracey at Inspire Happiness Daily chose this as one of her Top 5 photos!  And I said it wasn't a prize-winning photo.  :)  Thanks, Tracey!
