I continue to look for butterflies whenever I’m outside. They seem to be flitting about our farm a lot. When we were driving the cart toward the woods today, one almost hit me in the face. Lucky for both of us it missed.
Lately, butterflies have not posed for my camera, so I have not been able to take photos of them. Even though I see them, the butterflies are always flying and I am not fast enough to catch them on the wing.
As a child, I chased butterflies and fireflies. I caught the fireflies but never a lively butterfly.
Today’s photos are out of my archive. Enjoy.
I hope to see migrating butterflies again this fall. It was a special gift when they stopped here on the farm in 2018.
We have a couple of spots where we attach our critter cam to trees. These are right along our lane.
One time we attached the camera to a different tree and ended up with hundreds of photos. It turned out that wind moved the tall grass and set the camera off. Hardly any animals walked into view.
With the camera set in one of the usual spots, we caught Bob cutting grass and the neighbor taking a ride toward our woods–yes, the neighbor has permission. Raccoons come by this area, too, but the best is when we get deer.
On June 20th, we had a beautiful stag cross our camera’s path.
Bob and I sure do appreciate capturing the action with a camera, even if we aren’t on the scene at the time.
