Butterfly Sunday

I went walking in the Dykeman Spring Nature Park today, both down in the wetlands and upland along the edge of the meadow. The thing that struck me most was the abundance of butterflies everywhere in the park. I took a lot of shots today; the ones that don't deal with today's topic will be posted later in the week, but the four below are the best of the butterfly shots. Enjoy!

  1. The best thing about butterflies is how they suddenly seem to appear out of nowhere with all their beauty and lightness.

  2. I've always loved Cabbage butterflies. :)

  3. Wonderful and splendid. Great job!

  4. Taxi services usually go around the clock for pick up 24 hours a day 7 days a week. This means that if you are stranded somewhere you can get picked up at 4am in the quickest time possible. You don't have to go out to a main street to find them although, that is a possibility too.
