Butterflies and Flowers

These are a few photos I took this weekend when we went on a Sunday ride to Big Meadows along Skyline Drive. It is about an hour and then some from home. The weather is a little cooler up in the Shenandoahs but it was still pretty warm and yet comfortable. We were able to take lots of lovely photos which I will share this week.
