One Egg, Over Easy

Today’s post features a very small, Monarch butterfly egg that I found on a milkweed leaf in our Lake of the Ozarks (MO) church butterfly garden yesterday. Working very carefully, I removed that leaf and relocated it to one of my mesh, butterfly enclosures at home. I have a camera and macro lens focused on […]

As of lately, I see at least one of these little beauties daily, both in my home butterfly garden and the butterfly garden I tend at the church.  Can’t get enough of these lovely visitors!

This Year Goes to the Dogs!

Today’s post features one of my favorite photographic subject in the Missouri Ozarks … the beautiful Dogwood trees in bloom, in early spring! And in this year, particularly, it seems the abundance and boldness of the beautiful blooms are better than the past couple of years … dogwoods were blooming around every bend in the […]

A Small Beauty

Well, I’m back in the (indoors) office! Missed not posting last week, but had a plethora of things going on … maintaining my Ozarks (Missouri) butterfly garden, shopping and planting new plants, and having some real fun watching our Canada Goose dock nest (yes, a pair of geese nested in a large flower pot on […]

Hot Pink

Today’s post features another woodland glade wildflower that I saw on my hikes through Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park (in the Missouri Ozarks). The Fire Pink wildflowers are always great to see, although I only saw a single clump of them during my glade hikes. As spring is beginning to show leaves on trees/plants, and some […]

Not Exactly the Cat’s Meow

Today’s post features a couple of macro images I captured last week during my camping trip to Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park (located in the Missouri Ozarks). While hiking some of the woodland glade trails, there were abundant colonies of Pussytoes wildflowers growing. Pussytoes were given this name due to the fuzzy flowerheads. Pussytoes are also […]

A cold front came through and I was camping in night temperatures in the mid-20’s … awakening to find a gallon of water frozen, […]
