SULPHUR ON SUNFLOWER . . . Caught this little beauty in the sunflower patch. I liked the way the sunlight filtered through his far wing.

Hand held, straight from the camera except for framing.

Just this quick upload and I am off to get the dogs nails trimmed and a million other things . . .errand day.

Thanks for looking.

Hard to catch up this week, working and getting ready for trip, not much time for EPZ unfortunately

On my list of things to do . . . switch to high speed internet, this snails pace is killing me! Still miserably hot all summer in the 90's! Too hot to do much of anything except in the early morning and evening.

God bless,

Gorgeous backlighting through both the butterfly's wing and the flower petals. Composition works so well. Have a great and hopefully restful trip!
