Flutterbies & Flowers


After watching a butterfly work the thistle flowers recently, the next time it came back I grabbed the camera and got closer. I think it’s a probably a Great Spangled Fritillary (I’m much better at birds!) and it spent a long time on the thistles. There was also a much smaller Buckeye.

And there might have been cake, just to check out the new oven of course πŸ˜‰

  1. Beautiful butterflies and flowers. Is there any cake leftover? I adore pineapple upsidedown cake!!!

  2. Ok Joy, that was just pure evil, sneaking that pineapple upside down cake in there.
    Now i am on my way to the kitchen to see if i can find a sweet that wont stick to my butt.

  3. mmmmmm, cake I want some.

    none here.

    just veggies. /sigh

  4. I indirectly posted about cake today, and yours is the second-in-a-row that I’ve visited to mention it… that must be a sign!

  5. Fritillaries and pineapple cake. Perfect.
