Photos on the journey #487 – Don’t you wish you looked as good on your flip side?


After spending the day mowing most all my yard, I was sitting on the front porch and enjoying the most incredible weather. It was 49 this morning and rose to the low 80s. I deciding to do a search around the yard looking for a likely subject. It was slim pickings, but at last I spied this lovely little butterfly on the Fire bush. It was about the size of my thumb nail. He sat with his wings spread open long enough to grab 4 exposures. He then closed his wings and allowed me one quick capture and took off to do whatever little butterflies do.

Wish I looked as good coming and going!

More bugs from the yucca.

This one yucca in the field near our house has provided me with a wealth of life. Bugs, bees, flies and this creature. We used to call them blister bugs or stink bugs, have no clue as to what it really is other than being the best dressed bug I have seen in a while.
