Clouds have always been a favorite of mine. I love the clouds in the water and I love the second photo of the storm brewing.

schphgochi! You can and raise cats!!! What a woman. Gorgeous photos of your butterlies. Wonderful blue bird babies. I can't get enough of photos of blue bird babies. Here's a photo I took in Michigan. Such a peaceful setting. I hung out there for an hour while the kids took off to explore. I could see schools of fish the water was so clear. Dragonflies and damselfies were everywhere. Frogs were resting on the lily pads and some birds did fly above me.

Gorgeous photos! LOVE the butterfly pictures. I want to take a walk in your prairie, it looks so serene.

Can you tell us more about the butterflies you raised from caterpillers and how you did it? Any more pics?

Gorgeous photos! I haven't been around much or had time this summer to take many photos. But there are some awesome shots here! Love the stormy skies and the frogs are wonderful! The detail on the little critter shots, especially that fly! is great!

And I'd love to explore that little neck of the woods myself Equil. Beautiful shot! Looks so peaceful, I can see why you would sit there for an hour or so.

The prairie restoration looks wonderful schphgochi! What a lovely place.

Just wanted to check in and see what everyone was up to. Back to the garden I go. Time to plant fall crops now.
