    I thoroughly enjoyed your “quick snaps,” Sherry. Wildlife tend to demand that, and you certainly have a skill for it. I really liked every photo, and even heard myself murmuring praise as I scrolled down. The ones I was most attracted to were: Queen Anne’s lace (great geometric shapes), the Zabulon skipper (wonderful detail), sand fiddler crabs (he’s looking right at you), and the last monarch photo for the exquisite artfulness. Fun to see the box turtle, too. What a great day you had at Forsythe. I’m going back to see previous days.

      Thanks so much Jet. With practice I am getting better at nature photography. We only had a couple of hours to spend at Forsythe after house hunting. Glad you got to go there.

    Lovely! I am sure we are seeing less insects than usual here this year. I have been walking regularly down a path between wildflowers and you’d have thought they would be full of insects.

      Thanks. There are less insects world wide. Very alarming. Climate change, loss of habitat, and chemicals are to blame.

      Thanks Cybele. I haven’t had time to play with processing lately. Too busy house hunting.

    Lovely shots, especially the butterflies. I rarely see butterflies but on going through my archives, I do seem to have many photos of them, so maybe it’s just my current home location that doesn’t have them.

      Thanks Vicki. All it takes is a few plants that they like. There are some cultivars in addition to wildflowers native bushes that attract butterflies. You could try looking up and what plants are good for butterflies in your area.

    I especially enjoyed the last photo of the monarch and thistles, but I smiled at the box turtle. I’ve never seen one of those, but a blogger from the midwest is restoring land where they’re quite common, and I’ve come to find them quite beautiful.

      Thanks. That one turned out quite artsy 🙂 The turtle was a surprise. It was crossing the road. We stopped and helped it over. I assume it is called box because it has front and rear “doors”.

    They might be quick snaps, yet you have an interesting variety of them!
