Flying Things

26 Jul

I’ve seen lots of butterflies this year.  Last week’s heat was brutal.  I think it was even too hot for the flying insects because they were way more cooperative than usual when I wanted to take their picture.

It also gave me an excuse to rest under the shade trees while I was checking goats.  I’m very thankful that our temperatures and humidity have returned to more normal levels.

I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.

    Wow, you took some amazing shots – it was definitely helpful to have cooperative insects! I was trying to take some today and failed. I really only do well with the moths, which are fairly quiet during the daytime.

      I love my camera, and I really think the heat had slowed them down.

    I love this post! I see this little guys all the time but if I even attempt to grab the camera they disappear! Beautiful pictures!

      Thanks, Jen. I think it was the horrid heat when I was taking these. The butterflies were even too hot to fly away.
