Here's one I like, dogwood blossoms show up well against the dark green of the red cedars.

All the entries this month have been really nice.

Here's one from me. I captured this shot this weekend of an Olive Hairstreak on a rose vervain bloom.

Lovely, all of you! I really like the olive hairstreak. We don't have those, though we have juniper hairstreaks, which are similar.

A Colorado potato beetle (though I don't have any potatoes - it seems to like elderberry, though!)

Some close-ups of spring. I thought I put these up yesterday but I guess I didn't click submit. I must have been daydreaming!

Wow! What a great selection of photos! I want to type a comment to each participant, but it is past my bedtime, so here is a collective "great photos, everyone".

Last minute, again!
Found this lovely little baby box crawling thru the mossy area along the north side of the house a week or so ago. So cute!
