Butterflies, Blooms, Bees and Blueberries!

I am pre-posting this by about 4 days, so by the time it posts, we probably
will have snow where I live.

It is forecasted.

I am in denial.

So, today, I am bringing you back to August, when the flowers were still
in bloom and the butterflies and blueberries were ripe.

Remember??

It wasn't really that long ago.

It just seems that way......




I don't know the names of butterflies...
but I love them:






And bees?
Well, I like them in a photo....
but not on me:







The hand I love most in this whole wide world...holding some blueberries:








Hawkweed:








Another butterfly:








Love his butterfly hair!:








The butterfly and bee STANDOFF:
(Who is going to win the golden flower??)







A field of purple next to the lake:







Two beauties!:

If you live anywhere but in the tropics,
may the cool breezes you feel outside disappear
as you recall the warmth of summer.

these butterflies are truly amazing, a couple of them, i expected to fly out of the computer. the one with the sstand off with the bee is really cool. when the snow gets deep, just open your computer and stare at these gorgeous creatures.

Holy Moley! The photos are breath-taking! I can practically count the little hairs on the butterfly!

Thanks for this stroll back into warmer days.

Country Gal said...

Awesome photos. Snow is on the way here for us. Have a great day.

So. Cal. Gal said...

Aww! I love butterflies!

Andrea said...

Your photos are always admired, so i will not dwell on that anymore. I love most the last verse, which speaks fully for those in the temperate climes. What about us who are in the tropics and can't experience any cool breeze outside but inside the buildings? I should be the one to make the verse for our group, hahaha! Can you imagine us longing for colder breeze, which to us feels heavenly!

Valerie said...

The butterfly shots are my favourites. I read somewhere that butterflies can only fly when the sun is shining. Solar powered?

Cathy Clementz said...

WOW!!!! THESE BUTTERFLY SHOTS ARE EXCELLENT!!! And to capture the bee with the butterfly was very fortunate! Yep, heard you guys got some of that white gold!!!
