The Backyard

Photos taken yesterday in my backyard.  I don’t have to travel far to find beauty!

Buckeye

Its slightly smaller size and subtle difference in pattern differentiates this Viceroy butterfly from its larger cousin the Monarch.

A little spider in the honeysuckle trying to hide from the camera.

A perfect petunia

Eastern Black Swallowtail

Gulf Fritillary

I’ve forgotten the name of this lovely little flower. It grows in a pot on our front porch. I love the shade of purple, with yellow hidden deep inside.
