Sometimes they just won’t pose….

I chased this Gulf Fritillary (Argraulis vanillae) all over the garden.

Between the rain storms….

Oh Chris, I am so very sorry. I am sending you an e-mail. I had no idea.

Sending you all my love on the wings of a desert sparrow,
Deb

Great post, lovely photos, even showing a non-cooperative butterfly.

That storm looked wicked. We had a nasty one yesterday, while installing new a.c. unit. Doesn't that figure? All's well that ends well though. A.C. works fine.

I am ready for fall too and drier weather for sure.

Enjoy your week and your kitchen and laundry room and gardens. :-)

Lorraine-drier weather can't come soon enough for me.The weeds seem to be the only thing growing around here.

I definitely have a hard time capturing butterflies on camera, too. We are plenty wet up my way. Although it's been nice not having to water or seeing everything suffering from dryness.

Susan-Fall and the dry season can't come soon enough for me.Is it me,or does this summer seem way hotter and wetter than usual?
