Today,as we walk down Memory Lane let's take a look at butterflies and insects.
This year has been very quiet in the butterfly world,but in years past that was not the case.
Here are slide scans of Jake's pictures,featuring a variety of insects.
The first three pictures show the beautiful Monarch Butterfly.
It is seen on Milkweed,a favorite host plant. The next picture may need to be enlarged to see all the yellow butterflies or moths. There were hundreds of them all over this field.
Below a White Admiral.
It has created this perfect web.
I don't know much about bees except that this is called swarming.
Up close and personal with a dragonfly.
And a face to face encounter.
A pretty fuzzy caterpillar.
Jake caught this spider against a full moon.
Here are a few more dragonflies.
These are the same butterflies in the earlier picture with so many of them.
