SmugMug Daily Link
Donnie took me for a drive down my favorite gravel/dirt road, John Adams, yesterday. The Queen Anne's lace is blooming, and I'm eagerly awaiting the buds on the orange tiger lilies to develop and open too. I spent about 30 minutes in two different spots seeing what I could see and taking pics along the way.
My daily which I originally thought was a wasp is a tachanid fly Cylindromyia sp. Who knew?!? :-) Thanks to L. Perry Fuqua for suggesting that I use BugGuide for an ID.
I wanted to post this American Lady butterfly shot today, but the butterfly seemed to blend into the background too much.
Here's a collage of the best of the best of the day.
Johnny had another Little League baseball game last night, and I took pics again even though it was a later in the evening and therefore there was less light. The Ironbirds did win. Johnny was really starting to get the hang of backing up first base; he's often in right field. Here's a collage with some game highlights.
