Up Close Swallowtail

1-DSC_0031Stalking these magnificent creatures is a lot of fun. They move frequently, playing along in the chase. This milkweed captured its attention allowing me to close in. At this point I’m thick into the brush, with grass tickling my armpits, but I think you’ll enjoy my Up Close photo of the week.

Hide and Seek

I Played some hide a seek with this well attired Wood Nymph. I won with these photos. The Background of the surrounding flower and foliage adds some allure and mystery to its presence. This Floral Friday entry combines wildflowers and Butterflies. Thanks for looking in!

Macro Monday – Its a Bud’s Life

These Zinnia buds captivated my attention. Unique in each stage with unfolding detail they presented an interesting gallery for Macro Monday. Enjoy, thanks for Visiting.

Half and Half – Sunrise and Sunset

We arrived in South Haven Michigan last week to witness a wild sunset over Lake Michigan after a cold front came through. We departed from a sunrise over a calm lake and an incoming heat wave. Half and half, sunset – sunrise, wild waves – calm waters, cold front – heat wave, arrival and departure.Wild Sunset

Floral Friday – Lace Fit for a Queen

Lace Fit for a QueenI’ve been no-tech for a few days, so no post. But I have taken quite a few photos on a mini vacation into Michigan. I’ll share inĀ  future post.

Before heading out, I took a short photo hike looking for a spider that blends into Queen Ann’s Lace. I used to enjoy finding these with campers on nature hikes,

I found no spiders, but did play with the back light of a cloudy sky. I hope you enjoy the results. Than you for checking out my late entry for floral Friday.
