Hey Tom, if you ever over in S central Arkansas I can take you to a place where I saw about 50 within a half mile stretch. I’ve got so many shots of them that I won’t even bother bending my knees to shoot another one covered with dew unless it’s to verify that it isn’t something more exotic to me.

Robberfly feeding on a Borderpatch that’s still mating with a second.

Wow! . That sounds like an awesome opportunity!

It is very generous of you to be willing to share this place with me. . I just hope that within the next year or so I can manage to get down to your part of Arkansas to take advantage of it.

I'm going to do my best to remember your offer, so that the next time I'm driving down to Florida or the Carolinas I can get in contact with you and take a Buckeye detour. . I would love that!

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Just above 32F outside now, with a cold NE wind. Seems like a good time to upload a couple of “ladies “ I took on the 11th. Same plant and within 12 minutes of each other. Hope they both are in a warmer place now! :)

Nice color, Gene. Looks like PCamel gone? Shame, if true.

Thanks, DLeeT. Yes, I thought it wouldn’t come back. Lots of problems recently.

An intimate look at the male, I was able to get very close while he had his mind on other things.

Small skipper (Thymelicus sylvestnis) & Marbled white (Melanargia galathea) warming up at the start of the day.

Single images captured early on a lovely summer morning this year.

The only butterfly shot I have (so far) is an old one done with a Point-n-shoot (Olympus C3030Z). Just happened to take it to work one day, and this one was on a shrub at the office.

Very sharp. The individual scales show up nicely.
