I was finishing up unloading somethings into the garage earlier today. As I was about to get in this little butterfly decided he was wanting to go for a ride. I was able to walk around and get my camera out of the passenger seat and snap a few shots. s I went to get into the truck the little hitchhiker thought it was better to fly and took off on the next leg of its journey.
This being the last day of The Bride and I’s staycation we simply wanted to be. We wanted to be with good friends, eat well and enjoy the day. Well for the record it was a good day, a very good day.
I have been blessed with a new sense of an awareness of the diversity of life on our place. With that gift comes a realization of how much I really do not know of the world around me. The two photos below are just the tip of the iceberg of discovery that is before me. I know that these two photos below are of a butterfly and a moth but I have looked at several data bases and still need help to positively identify them. Feel free to educate me.
I used my Powershot SX10is for these captures.
It has been one of those days and we will leave it at that………..so I present to you Mishmash Monday.
The heat and its ever presence weight was rising as I did an mid-morning walkout today. The sun was hiding behind the oncoming storm clouds but it’s hot self was felt with every step. As I wrapped up the walk, and headed back to our home to mow the yard, I was thinking about insects and their ability to tolerate heat that makes me whine. So here is a couple of those wonders hanging ten, or six :), in a heat wave!
I know this is Butterfly but have not had time to identify it yet. Time is short and I am late so here is a Butterfly on the fly. Enjoy the day!
