MY window on Nature

A bee came along just as I was photographing this butterfly this morning. A lucky surprise when I downloaded the picture.

Thousands of Skippers

Thousands of Skippers

Myraids of skippers filled the air as we walked through the meadow
some blossoms had more than their share hosting five or more( Click to enlarge to count the five!)
e of the tiny creatures. Some butterflies were in the meadow like this Northern Crescent
on this Brown -eyed Susan below. One skipper hurrying to feed tangled its
proboscis over its antenna.

Among the thousands there were many picturesque sights.
Some as if crossing swords with their antennaeThe sun was as the wind is to falling leaves inviting activity dispersing beauty about the meadow

beauty was everywhere!Today is a sunny day , perhaps I'll return to the meadow again today.
