Out and About
Been trying to catch some of the beautiful Eastern Tailed Blue butterflies that are flying all over, but they are generally very skittish and flighty, and seldom open their wings to show off their bright blue dorsal side. I have gotten some nice photos of them in past years, but not yet this year – you’ll see some with their wings closed, below. They are bright white with black spots on their ventral, or undersides, so when they fly they look like tiny powder blue butterflies – the bright blue and the white combine when they fly to give that appearance. You’ll notice the magnolia trees are coming into full bloom – and what a scent! Wish I could create a “scratch and sniff” widget for it! Enjoy the rest. Just a few taken while I was out and about!
Have you captured any light lately?
