Catching Spring Fever

Today’s post features an image that I found while editing older images … immediately, I got spring fever!

This image of a Tiger Swallowtail butterfly collecting nectar from a thistle plant, was captured on a Missouri prairie a few years ago:

Another sure sign of approaching spring is the wonderful display of woodland wildflowers that are now beginning to appear. I spent some time yesterday in the Ozarks woodlands … hope to have some early wildflower images ready soon!
