Capturing The Moment — Painted Lady On A Rock

Lizard Walk (1 of 1)-15 Painted Lady blogPainted Lady Butterfly On A Rock — Image by kenne

This time of year I spend more time hiking on Mt. Lemmon that I do doing nature walking in Sabino Canyon. The exception was yesterday’s SCVN Lizard Walk. During the walk, which I will be posting on later, we saw a few butterflies. Currently, there are naturalists doing butterfly counts. I haven’t seen a report on the numbers, but from my observation trying to photograph them, the numbers are low.

The above image of a painted lady is one of the few butterflies I saw, at least that stopped for a moment. Maybe I would have seem more if I had been looking for butterflies rather than lizards.

(25) “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?
(26) Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
(27) Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
(28) “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field…

Snowy Owl Migrations

La Paz Group

Climate change has had a significant impact on a multitude of global issues ranging from the environment to even politics; the Snowy Owl, Bubo scandiacus, is another organism that is feeling the effects of warming temperatures impede on its natural habitat in the northern circumpolar region. Varying degrees of climate change have significant impacts on the apex predator’s prey, which subsequently relocate, thus forcing Snowy Owls to migrate as well.

Art and Science 5: John James Audubon and his American Birds

Before the Art

Guest post by Edward Spencer

I like birds… I am not sure when this interest took hold, but I feel that there is something soothing and comforting about watching the little guys potter about. Their lives seem so beautifully simple yet each one has its own complex story. I also think that they add an additional element to art and photography, providing a focal point to a landscape, reflecting the mood of certain scenery or weather or just providing a way to show off your skills and perseverance. Therefore, when I became interested in photography, birds became my top challenge.

So when asked to write a post on art and science my brain quickly went to John James Audubon (1785-1851), the French-American painter, adventurer and birder who sailed into Britain in 1826 with his great work, the ‘Birds of America’.

This fantastic book consists of the life-sized…
