An example from five years ago, one of the Hairstreak butterflies.
This last series of the three photos below is courtesy of the budding photographer, Mrs. F.G. She claims it was just the camera, my iphone, but I think these are spectacular.
The sun is shining brightly outside the window now, but we've had two brief thunderstorms in the past couple of hours. These are just pop-up storms arising out if our excessive heat over the past week. The rain is VERY welcome!
Hope those of you who go south to avoid our refreshing winters are enjoying this heat!!
