Alien at my window…

I was not prepared to take insect portraits today, but when I saw this guy through my window I had to run outside and take a few photos. He (or she…) kept turning his head to look at me. I’m sure he doesn’t realize just how fascinating he is!

The last one…

The butterflies have left our garden. Summer is coming to an end. Here is one last shot to hold you over until next year! Now, time to focus on some fall foliage 🙂

 

 

The first of many…

Summer is just about over, but I’m still seeing daily butterfly visitors in the backyard. Our butterfly bushes have grown to the size of a small tree! They are beautiful though, so I’ve been waiting until the season is over to cut them back. Luckily for me, plenty of photo opportunities!

 

Found a friend…

I found plenty of horseshoe crab shells while walking down the beach, but here I actually found one that was still alive! For some reason, the seagulls chose to let this one live…

Last week’s weekly challenge: Hands

I’m a bit behind in these weekly challenges, but I assume no one will hold it against me 🙂 The “hands” challenge was a tough one. What I learned from this challenge is that I don’t like the look of hands in photos. I guess I’m not a hands photographer. So, I took it another route… Let me know what you think!
