Sunday   Leave a comment

Lots of riders on this beautiful Sunday.  It’s my day for shopping and Barnes and Noble, though, so I didn’t get out much.  At least, here are a couple of favorite pictures, these from May of ’09.

A tiger swallowtail on sage blossoms:

We have monarch butterflies, painted ladies, mourning cloaks — why is it all of my butterfly pictures are tiger swallowtails?  Maybe they’re not as skittish as the rest.

Here’s a blue-and-white iris.

Or is it violet-and-white?  I love the color that is poised between blue and violet.  My mother used to call it wood violet.
