Nature Blog Carnival posts March 2012

Welcome to the March 5, 2012 edition of nature photography.

My entry for this carnival is about the Dingy Swallowtail Butterfly.  My husband found this butterfly on the ground near an Oleander bush on the weekend. It had a damaged wing and could not fly.  I picked it up to put it somewhere safe to photograph it but it didn’t want to let go of my hand. Hubby took it and I got this shot and then we placed it in the Oleander bush high up, safe from predators on the ground. It stayed there for around 48 hours (through intense rain periods) and then disappeared.

  1. I love Butterflies, I remember when I am in Junior school having a field trip in the butterfly garden, I witness the life cycle of them and I feel so scared because of the caterpillars, I hate creatures that used to crawl, but when the Butterfly comes out it feels me more better.

  2. What a beautiful photo. Nicely done!

  3. Nature photography is absolutely important for environmentalism as it gives people all over the world the opportunity to see plants, animals, and landscapes that they wouldn’t see otherwise.
