Northern Blue Butterflies.

I really like the powder blue color on this one.

Image

This one doesn’t have as much blue in it, a female?

As you can see, they are very small too. Hope you enjoyed them!

I’ve only seen these orange flowers in one area, on Reeve Blvd near Ship Creek. Google wasn’t any help in finding a name for them.

Image

I really need a 105mm macro for these shots. Donations accepted.

Image

Relax, I’m just taking a picture of them.

This Bald Eagle was circling over the ducks and geese.

A Canadian Tiger Swallowtail butterfly. It was very windy too, only a few pics turned out.

Spring is here!

The snow is gone and the wildlife is back!

If I’m correct, this is a Goldeneye duck.

I’m no expert, but I think this is a Milbert’s Tortoiseshell Butterfly. (Nymphalis milberti)

I don’t smoke, but if I saw this sign I would’ve done this too.
