Guadalupe River Monarchs
Spotted a few Monarch butterflies along the banks of the Guadalupe River yesterday afternoon. This is the earliest I've seen the Monarchs along the river, roughly a month ahead of schedule. What this tells me is pretty simple....get ready for a cooler than average winter this year.
I live in the western region of the Edwards Plateau, deep in the Texas Hill Country. I'm an avid outdoorsman spending a large portion of my time "out there" roaming the wide open spaces. Much of my photography is simply an extension of a very active outdoor lifestyle.
The challenges posed with closing the distance, pursuing wildlife photography, is an absolute hoot for me! The experience out there alone is everything to me. If I capture pixels along the way , it's icing on the cake.
