I enjoy perching bird shots....
You are allowed four images per person per month.
Looking forward to one more of your photos.

Nice photos, Amelanchier! I think the butterfly is a fritillary.

Oh OK, thanks. I didn't even try to key it out in any way, just guessed based on what I could remember, which isn't much.

Cool picture--love the metalic look. I'd love to see it as an adult.

Way cool! The dragon fly nymphs I have seen have never been metallic like this one. It must be those Michigan winters. I wish I had them (the dragonflies, not the winters!)
