    Hi Wendy, those are such lovely portraits of monarchs! really stunning. I have not checked back here for a while and now it is Nov. 16th and snowing outside. Your photos are a balm but I am a devil of a time figuring out this new interface! :-P

    Hi CC & welcome to this upgraded hell-hole ... was very fortunate to have watched this Monarch eclosing & doubly lucky to have posted the pics before CF went pearshaped .. have been trying to make sense of it since day 1 & more frustrated each time!  Snow/sleet forecast for me here middle of next week!  Brrrrrrrrr

    Goodness gracious. I am having a heck of a time finding where I left off in any of these forums. I do punch NEWEST in an effort to bring the most recent posts up first, or it kinda does it... I am not sure how this is "better"... and I guess others are finding it just as challenging. Is there a MANUAL anywhere??? :-P

    Not as yet CC, having to work it out as we go ... or not, as is often the case!!  It's a mess alright & I believe most of the regular posters are now bald!

  • Brilliant photos all, butterflies and moths here recently have been very conspicuous by their absence!

    A couple from the River Stort, Bishops Stortford, during a recent visit to our son.

    Speckled Wood

    And what I think is a "heart and dart" moth.

    It definitely has a small heart on each wing...
