Beautiful work! f/v

Mother Nature replied:

Thank you, Lee! I appreciate the visit, the comment, and the V/F very much:>)

OMG! Carol, how did I ever miss this beauty! I was very intrigued, as it looked like a butterfly on snow, but know that isn't likely, so I took time to read your description, and wow what a wonderful idea. I will surely try this this summer. We always have an overripe banana, and once in a while a stale beer! LOL So will blend, then smear on a tree trunk within viewing range and photo range, and watch, as this is a very exciting new venture for me. Never heard of this before. Thanks so much, Carol, for sharing this photo and the info to accompany, as I will let you know the new results of my test either via email or a great shot shared on FAA! Fave and vote

Thank you so much for the fave, Karen:>)

Nice capture of a fine specimen Carol! I like the contrasting background.

Mother Nature replied:

Thanks, Doris:>) I'll tell my husband that his attempts to build a stone wall has an even better outcome - picture background:>)

Try it - you'll like it! (Or you might regret it for a long time depending on what you draw in - it could be a bunch of partying fools! LOL) There was a bear within a couple miles of here a few days ago. The wardens tranquilized it and took it into the mountains. Bears have such large territories that it might come back.

Carol, you are crazy my friend, the butterflies are beautiful but you are going to end up with bears in your yard, and bananas ?? funny

This is a great mug for my morning coffee, and I get to enjoy looking at this replica of my favorite artist's painting of Leland Fishtown.

Artist's Description

These are well-known butterflies (this year especially as they are at a record high in population numbers) that migrate northward in the spring and then again, sometimes, in the fall. They retain resident status only in southern regions where the temperature is dependably warm. We draw them in to our yard (along with some anglewings) by mashing up a ripe banana and mixing it with flat beer; we spread this mess on tree bark and get butterflies, flies, bees, wasps, ants - you name it. Great fun!!! This picture was taken May 6, 2012, in Green Lane, Pennsylvania, USA. Red Admirals have almost a global range and can be found in Asia and Europe, too.

About Mother Nature

I invite you to visit my blog - Nature's Wonders - which is all about the natural world in my neighborhood. I always wanted to try photography, and my retirement offered an opportunity to do just that. The natural world is my first love. Here you will find pictures of things both large (landscapes, for instance) and small (macro) that catch my eye. I hope the images serve as a window into the natural world many of you don't have the chance to see. In a sense, I'm trying to create a guided nature trail, sharing what information I have about the subject. I'm always grateful for new and better information and welcome all input. Learning is food for the mind and soul. Nothing is ever...
