    Went out to take some wildflower pictures today, but it was too windy to keep them in focus. By staying on I was gifted with some other cool shots. Enjoy!

    SO happy to have captured this image of a Zebra Swallowtail butterfly today. One of three shots. I hardly ever see these, and they don't stay still long. Love the red and blue on the wings.

    Another butterfly, different from the typical orange skippers I take photos of. Like the shape of the wings. If you want to search google and tell me what it is, knock yourself out. Edit: See below. It's called an Eastern Comma.

    Can't say I've ever seen wild strawberries on the trails I go on, but here they were today.

    It was so windy today that leaves have flipped to their undersides and stayed that way.

    As I left I saw yet another deer. I didn't make much of an effort to get a good shot (I have tons of deer shots), but noticed when I got home that there are a pair here.

    The SNAKE I told you about. Love how this vine looks like it has a python ball going on.

    Just found out that the bright orange butterfly above is called an Eastern Comma because of a silver comma shape on the underside of its wings. Here is a crappy shot of that same butterfly I took today that shows it.

    Learn something new every day!

    Nature? Yeah, whatever. Have you heard the new Britney Spears song? Who is better, Mariah or Lady Gaga? Who's hotter, masculine or feminine guys? What song are you listening to right now? What song do you think the guy above you is listening to right now?

    I feel somewhat betrayed... When you use words like, zebra and snake and shoot, you set up an expectation to see a snake eating a zebra at gunpoint.

    Nice photo's tho.

    How about I wrap around you like a snake and we both shoot? Or vice versa. icon_wink.gif
