Yesterday I was out and about with a friend and came across a few critters; three butterflies and one Japanese Beetle.The Cabbage White landed on the Coneflower momentarily, as did the little Skipper on this pretty Balloon Flower. I was hoping he would position himself a little better but no, this was all I could get and when I tried to alter my angle for a better shot he flew off. I suppose seeing a strange woman trying to contort herself into an odd shape was too much.
I am not sure what this butterfly is. He looked a little worse for wear as you can see part of his wing is missing. He was on a paving-stone path and we studied it for about a minute, took a photo and he flew off. Flutterbies, like me, need to stay off the caffeine.
The Japanese Beetles are about and I could not get a very clear image of this one but wanted to show how busy he had been eating his lunch.
This is another Japanese Beetle I took a few years back. It also came out blurry but I decided to work with it in Paint Shop Pro and turned it into a 'painting'.
