Cute Backside
Macro flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

I found this cute, little flower facing the early morning sun and thought the light illuminating the petals created a very appealing image.

I snapped this photo at the Butterfly Palace in Branson, Missouri. Of course, I was there to photograph their butterflies but I had arrived a few minutes before they were ready for me. While waiting in the parking lot for an employee to let me in, this cutie caught my eye.

I don’t know what kind of flower this is. Silly me. I should have snapped an image of the front of the bloom so I could easily identify it.

Designer Dots
Butterfly photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The seven dots adorning this large butterfly caught my eye while studying the amazing winged creatures at the Butterfly Palace in Branson, MO.

I have no idea what kind of butterfly this is. It might be easier to identify if I had a photo of the upper side of the wings. Most identification guides seem to show the butterflies with wings open.

First and Last Lights
Sunrise lighthouse photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

As the sun breaches the horizon, bringing its first light of morning, the Algoma, Wisconsin lighthouse is bringing its last light of the night.

I’ve not had much time lately to get a lot of photography done so I began to visit the archives to see what gold I might be able to find. This is a shot from May of 2013. I was actually thinking of making it a monochrome image, but decided I couldn’t pass up the warm tones of that background.

Buckeye Beauty
Butterfly photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This little beauty is a junonia coenia butterfly; better known a the “common buckeye.” You’ve likely seen this butterfly in your own neighborhood.

Though the majority of Buckeyes populate the southern regions of the U.S., adults from the south’s first brood migrate north in late spring and summer to temporarily colonize most of the United States and parts of southern Canada. I photographed this one on a recent trip to southern Missouri. A number of them (along with a few monarch butterflies) were feeding on a patch of asters next to a sidewalk at the resort we were staying at.

Turbulent Solitude
Sunrise photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Lake Michigan’s waves were churning during an otherwise peaceful morning as the sun was ascending behind the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse and pier. Look closely and you can see people fishing on the pier.

I checked the date stamp on this image and it appears I took this photo on the morning of my birthday in September of 2017. It took me long enough to finally get around to processing and posting it. I may need to get more focused.

Orchids Up Close
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The intricate pattern of color and unique shape makes the Orchid a delight to behold and study.

This is a cluster of blooms I found when photographing butterflies in the Butterfly Palace in Branson, MO. They had several orchids growing in the tropical environment created for the butterflies.

To view a larger version – best for studying the details – click on the photo.

Feed the Flame
Butterfly photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This distinctively marked butterfly was feeding on some tiny red flowers at the Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure in Branson, MO.

On a recent trip to Branson, Missouri I spent several hours at the Butterfly Palace getting a ton of butterfly images. I was also able to snap a few of the local, native butterflies in the wild. Stay tuned, as I intend to post a variety of butterfly photos in the coming weeks.

In my mind, this butterfly’s orange markings look like a custom painted flame design. I couldn’t identify this type of butterfly. Even a chart of butterflies on the wall at the Butterfly Palace didn’t have an example of this one, though there were a bunch of these beauties flitting around.

If you have a sharp eye, you may have noticed another butterfly in this shot, It’s the blurry orange and white spot in the upper left-hand corner.

To get a closer, more detailed look, click on the photo.

Aster In the Wild
Wildflower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Where our lawn and the adjacent farm field meet, these purple Asters are adding some nice color to the landscape.

This is a small sample of the larger wildflower clump. These yellow and purple blooms attract a steady flow of butterflies and bumble bees this time of year.

Asters fall into the Asteraceae family which encompasses around 180 species. The name Aster comes from an Ancient Greek word meaning “star”, an obvious reference to the shape of the blooms. The aster is the birth flower for September.

For a closer look, click on the photo and a larger version will appear.

Frog In A Bog
Nature photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This northern leopard frog seemed content to spend his summer resting in the green goo of a wetlands area in northeast Wisconsin.

I found this fellow, along with a number of others, in the wet areas of the Kewaunee River Marsh walk. Near the Kewaunee, WI harbor, the walk features a wooden deck with benches along the way where you can relax and enjoy the natural beauty.

Unlike most of the images on my site, this was not taken with my DSLR. This image was captured with my Galaxy s6 smartphone. This frog was very cooperative; allowing me to get within inches to take this shot.

You can get a better view with the larger version of this image. Simply click on the photo.

Transcendent Flourish
Panorama photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Clouds were the scene makers, along with the rising sun, behind the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier. Kewaunee is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

This is a panoramic image, created by combining several smaller, individual shots into one large image. This makes it a huge file. It was necessary to fit all of this beautiful sky in the shot.

You can view a much larger and wider version of this image by clicking on the photo.
