In High Clover

Instead of mowing our grass (er, clover),
the moths and butterflies get to enjoy it a bit longer while the rain continues to fall.

You did well to capture the butterfly. When I try they flap away!

Oh yes!!! Don't mow that clover!!! Phullleeeeeze...

Look at me up North. Hallucinating alligators or foxes, in fallen trees! Eeeek! -giggles-

You have lovely clover blossoms. Keep them. Enjoy them. For me, even. :-)

Great picture, The butterfly is wonderful. We just mowed over ours.

I have an intense dislike for anyone that can get close enough to do that!

Tomorrow, I plan to post a shot of a dragonfly I fluked just so I don't get entirely upstaged!

Very nice Red-banded Hairstreak.

I haven't seen any yet. Your springtime may be just a little ahead of ours here in Ft. Worth.

Good find and great photo.

I like your spider and story also.

We bought a fig tree at the nursery yesterday and discovered a small house spider on it when we got home.

Good lesson. Watch for hitchhikers.

PS: We turned the spider loose in the garden. I like most spiders.

Thanks, Texas Travelers, for identifying this spider for me!

Beautiful! You must have a really good camera. And a good eye, of course. :)
