One more look at this week’s photo challenge, visualizing “connected.” Nature provided a few examples this morning.
After a long, thirsty summer, we welcomed a widespread rain last night. It’s been a long time since there was enough moisture to see droplets cling to petals, leaves and even insects. The cooler fall temperatures are also encouraging regrowth. Volunteer dill, sorrel and clover are all coming back to life.
March 1, 2013, UPDATE: Thanks to Dan Chaffee, who ID’d this as a red spotted purple. Will have to hunt harder!
Some days, you just get the blues, in a good way. The Diana fritillary butterfly is the state butterfly of Arkansas.
