A Summer trip out into the Wilderness: Part TWO...
Today, we continue my series of photos
from a trip out in the wilderness of the U.P. of Michigan
taken early to mid-summer.
Two friends on some thimbleberry blossoms:
A blue damselfly on some greenery:
I just loved the black wings on this damselfly on the rocks:
More thimbleberry blossoms:
Another colorful friend stopped by:
Can you tell I love winged creatures?:
Center of an evening primrose:
One of my very smart Blogger friends told me that when butterflies gather like this on a road,
they are "puddling".
Don't you just love smart blogger friends??:
The flag iris were pretty enough...but when this butterfly landed on them,
I had NO CHOICE but to take the photo:
This guy was walking along the ground. He saw the stick and abruptly did an "about face"
and walked back the way he came.
Must have been too much of a challenge to walk over it and he didn't want to fly?:
There will be more of our adventurous day in the wilderness
in my next post.
Until then, take every chance you have to observe the little details where YOU live...
you'd be amazed what you see, if you just pay attention...
- The Retired One
- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
