And overhead the great clouds sail...
as I struggle to make images showing them and the landscape, too (a tall order and a terrible thing to ask of a camera)
but I got my best-yet photo of a dogbane beetle in the meadow this summer. All with the trusty Canon G-11.
I love this photo of a fritillary and the whole meadow stretching out behind it.
One day I happened on a Peck's skipper deeply engrossed in a Laurentia blossom. I thought perhaps a crab spider had hold of it, and went to help it. No. The butterfly was just trying to reach that delicious nectar at the very bottom of the corolla tube.
It hurriedly backed out and looked at me as if to ask me what I thought I was doing.
