Small Things On A Nice Lazy Day





I used my Canon Powershot S3is for these captures.


A Butterfly And A Moth

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.


Did you noticed the eggs on the leaf next to the left hand wing? Cool, no?

I used my Powershot SX10is for these captures.

More Little Treasures

The bride to The Boy to the creek today after work. When they came back she told me about a little vine with purple flowers on it she had found. I went with her and The Boy back down to the creek. I found the vines by said little purple flowers about the same time the clouds found the sun. Since I am who I am I took the shot(s) of this little treasure. Below, accompanying the purple flower, is a Fleabane I found with a little moth on it.
