Weekend Walk About

We walked in the woods Friday evening.


The sun was still bright when the
Eastern Tailed Blues were puddling in the parking lot.


As the evening began to descend
we spotted the Little Wood Satyr.



When we spotted the Great Spangled Fritillary
the sun was starting to set.
We stopped and watched the Herons.
They were getting ready for the night.

Saturday we walked about the Plaza.




A festival was being set up.
The Dragon Boats were coming!

It was Sunday's walk in the woods

that made the weekend so incredible!



It was spending time with the Jewel Wings that stirred my spirit.
Maybe we can grab an afternoon this week to walk in the woods.
I want to be in the woods!

Beautiful butterflies! I'd love to know butterfly names... I'll put a butterfly guide book on my wish list. Thanks for the inspiration.

Walking without dogs does have its advantages - you can watch butterflies!! My favourite shot is the seedhead at the beginning of the post, though!! I just love the shape of the parachutes!

Great close-ups. I am looking to upgrade my camera. What camera did you use to take these? Thanks!

When you're in the woods, do the skeeters attack? I must have the best tasting blood this side of the Mason-Dixon. I can't venture out of a mornin or evenin without bein eaten alive. ;~O

I love your walks.
