Experimenting with "magnifying" apps for phones. I'm trying to see how close to #macro the pics come out. This is the only #monarch #egg I have at the moment. I also have 10 chrysalides and 12 caterpillars. Though one of the hatchlings seems to have disappeared. I'm guessing he was cannibalized by one of his roomies. 😞 #insectsofinstagram #lepidoptera

My first attempt at a slow motion video of a butterfly release. Not the greatest result, haha. I need to pan faster or something. Maybe next time. Anyway, this is number 17!

Another photo of #beloved "Chloe"
She was still a bit #sleepy at the #WINC #MeetAndGreet so most of the pics I got look like this, haha. #Owls are #nocturnal after all. 😉 She's so #cute !!

This is "Chloe" an #easternscreechowl at #wildlifeinneedcenter
She's also an #educationanimal #embassador who cannot be released into the wild due to an automobile collision causing detached retinas in both eyes and a partial wing amputation. She's kind of a cuddler, for an owl anyway, haha. ❤ #precious #raptorsofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #wisconsinwildlife #WINC #Rehabilitation

"Dakota" the #greathornedowl from #wildlifeinneedcenter
I attended their "Meet and Greet" this evening and got a few pics of the #educationanimals
All of the permanent resident critters at #WINC are unable to be released into the wild for various reasons so they stay on as #embassadors and help to educate the public.

This is Dakota. He's a #greathornedowl who resides at #wildlifeinneedcenter
Because he can't survive in the wild on his own, he became an #educationanimal #embassador at the center. He's a bit if a charmer. 😀 #wildliferehabilitation #giveahootaboutwildlife #WINC #raptorsofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #animals

These four #bluebirds were #released into the wild yesterday. They were brought to #wildlifeinneedcenter as orphaned nestlings where they were cared for until they were old enough to be on their own. #slowmotion #wildliferehabilitation #nature #Wisconsin #WINC #birdsofinstagram #animalsofinstagram

This is Sova, a #barredowl under the care of #wildlifeinneedcenter, and is one of their education #animal embassadors. #raptorsofinstagram
