It is dinner time. A mother black-naped monarch feeds the nestlings. They like to feed on butterflies, spiders and flying insects like grasshoppers.Between March and August–the breeding season, monarchs build cup-shaped nests with straws and decorate them with spider-egg cases. Fork of a sapling is their safest nesting place. The canopy above provides protection from predatory birds hovering in the sky. The parent birds always remove the nestlings' fecal sacs so that predators cannot smell it and find the nest. Usually, hatching needs about 12 days.

I'm a passionate & self-taught photographer who likes to travel and discover new essence of life through travel & lifestyle photography. Being a freelance photographer, my passion is to explore & study the different aspects of human life, witness different cultures, and document the colorful & contrasting side of it. I photograph to see what the world looks like in photographs. Through my photographs, I want to share my views and experience with all.
