We don't have a lawn -- we have an expanse of tall weeds. Which grows some nice milkweed plants, which means we get monarch caterpillars. When we find them, we bring them inside and raise them. Today we got our first butterfly. A boy.
I went back in and got the big Nikon/Kodak Pro SLR/n and set the 35-135mm to its macro setting. Tried to get him to spread his wings for me, but it'd been cool inside and he was happy to sit atop a Queen Anne's lace and sun himself.
Though not anywhere as productive as Pat H-M in Chicago, we have more on the way.
Just trying to help.
