two hundred and twenty three


The illness has left our house, and I was off chasing butterflies again when I heard a buzzing.  It isn't unusual, there are all manner of bees, moths, and insects zooming about our backyard Buddleia bush, but this one was particularly loud.  It took a while for my brain to process what I heard and what I saw, but one quick click and it was gone--a humming bird!

They are fast little buggers! Both photos just absolutely elegant. I'm mesmerized by the light through those butterfly wings!

What a wonderful butterfly image! And the silhouette of the hummer is a great catch.
