A rare and beautiful Monarch Butterfly plus a Bumble Bee on a Scotch Thistle

By on 8-16-2011 in Digital Images + Collage, Original photos

One bright and sunny day a Monarch came to visit. It spread it’s wings just long enough for me to snap a photograph.


When I was young they were numerous and you would see them almost every day. Now it is rare to see one at all and we have seen two this year. I will use this photo in a collage, soon, to honour this beautiful butterfly.

Bumblebee on a Scotch Thistle in the rocks of the Ottawa River

A Scotch Thistle that is growing in the rocks by the Ottawa River is sporting a bumble bee. What a pretty colour these thistles are.
