Too hot to walk

I walked about in my backyard.

Our clover lawn is home to many bugs.

The Eastern Tailed-blue butterflies

seem to enjoy all the flowers.

The bees love the lavender.

A Variegated Fritillary flew in.

First time I have ever seen one.

A caterpiller munching on a geramiun.

A Zebra Swallowtail having lunch in the butterfly weed.

It is too hot to walk.

I think I will stay home with my bugs.

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!

Walk in the woods

We went walking in the woods.

I was hunting for bugs.

My husband and I hunt for bugs on Sunday.

Finding tiny, tiny toads was an extra treat!

I post photographs of Sunday Safari
on my main blog Q's Corner.
