Scenes from Pasture

30 Aug

bug on the wild aster

Pretty sure this was right before they flew the coop.

Fritillary on alfalfa

A squirrel was enjoying the walnuts that grow in the pasture.

I think there were a pair of newly fledged barn swallows (but not from the nest above).  At least, I was getting dived at by another one, and these two just sat there unconcerned about my presence.

We’ve had enough rain that it’s still green and pretty out in pasture right now.  There are lots of wildlife too.

Butterfly Wings

18 Aug

I’ve seen lots of butterflies this summer!  It’s nice having a variety as well.

Buckeye

Sadly, this one’s wings are messed up, and it can’t fly.  It seemed to be doing okay for now though.

Fritillary

Orange Sulfur

Common Sootywing

The monarch would not sit still, so I finally decided to try for a flight shot.
