Golden Skipper and Eichinops

....as seen in my garden this summer....

WE are safe and very wet, but large areas of central Pennsylvania are flooded including our state capitol (Harrisburg) and Hershey Park (some of you may know of this amusement park.) Our phone connection i (and internet) is whonky but functioning. It continues to rain.

Glad you are safe.
This is another great shot. This skipper really cooperated in allowing you to frame a most interesting composition. Smile
Very nice.

Superb image Jenn, I particularly like the beautiful sparkling blue of the flower, the gold of the skipper, and the phased out green background. So glad you are safe, it looks like the South of England is due to get a backlash of the weather you have been having within the next 48 hours, not as bad as you have seen, but looks like a bumpy ride is coming Wink

I've been hearing from a friend in Arlington, VA, about their schools flooded out. Keep safe.

My goodness Jennn, this is simply stunning, the colour and detail in the eichenops is wonderfull, while the butterfly, perfectly placed, is really the icing on the cake, and all topped off with a lovely presentation too. I'm certain I won't see better this week so gladly give it my UA!
Rgds., Jim
PS. Pleased to see you're doing fine so far, I was concerned as I know you have trouble with the creek overflowing with even lesser amounts of rain than recent.
