Pollinating on a Break

I think I enjoy taking photos of butterflies almost as much as taking photos of birds. I followed this guy around until he took a liking to this cone flower .. and then I took a few photos.

More Time With Butterflies

On Monday of this week, Teresa and I started the day with a hike along the Miami River, then spend some time at Garbry Big Woods. Later that day, we joined the Butterfly Walk (I always say hike) at Stillwater Prairie Reserve. This video captures some of what we saw.

Another butterfly photo from a butterfly walks earlier this summer. I love the blues and blacks of this amazing butterfly. It was on the banks fo the Stillwater River. I think we saw one like this every time we hiked in this spot. The come here for water. Such a beautiful creature.

One very yellow butterfly

This photo is from our last butterfly walk (hike) of the season. I love this dudes eyes. This is a Sulfur butterfly - very yellow and beautiful. ❤️

The video today is a little different (I think I say that too often). This video was shot indoors at the wonderful Festival of Trees in Sandy, Utah. Funds raised at Festival of Trees are a “A Gift of Love” to children at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. This hospital has done so much for my granddaughter and the family. She has Cystic Fibrosis, and the doctors and nurses at Children’s Primary have been a big help in difficult times. If this holiday season is not your thing, then please, don’t watch this one.

I could not believe all the trees. Amazing. Enjoy!

On August 7, I posted photos of this species of butterfly. The ‘Question Mark’ and the ‘Comma’ butterfly are so beautiful. Such a cool design, and they really look like a leaf. Outside of the Monarch, this is my favorite. Read more about these beautiful creature here!
