A Summer Trip out into the Wilderness: Part THREE

Our journey continues together
as I share my trip out into the U.P. woods with you today.

This little butterfly was very elusive and kept jumping from flower to flower, but I finally had a second where he was still on some daisies:

Cone heads!:

I love me some daisies!:

Another damselfly shot: (I just can't help myself!):

They are just so stinkin' cute!:

The Devil's paintbrush.
I must admit, he may be rotten, but he has good taste in colorful wildflowers!:

Look hard...there are some damselflies in this shot:
(Did you guess how many?)

Yes, THREE are in this shot.

Not only am I addicted to dandelion puffs, damselflies, daisies, turtles, ponds,
but show me an old gnarly tree or a fallen tree with great roots,
and I am a goner:

Some girls get excited over a new pair of high heels....

Old roots excite me.

What can I say?

Good thing I live where I live and not New York City....

Love the first photo the most, I think. Although they are all awesome, again!

Grandmother Mary said...

Gnarly tree lover? Me too! Great shots.

Rita said...

No high heels for me, either! These are great! That little butterfly is beautiful and I don't think I've seen one with those markings before. Love me some daisies and damselflies. And the Devil's paintbrush--striking! I'm going to have to come back to these in the winter. ;)

Me too, I like photographing trees. I should do it more often. I liked the damsel flies, their iridescent colour is wonderful.
