I Went Out Into The Fields Today



To see what I could find ! Ok got that song in your head yet lol not exactly the same words but you get the gist of it lol ! Yes I went out in the fields again today , the weather was amazing sunny with bright blue sky’s  a few white puffy clouds and cool breezes .  I noticed every time I want to take photos of butterfly’s , bees and flowers  it is always breezy and trying to capture them in between each blow of wind is a bit tricky I might add to lol !  This field is right beside our house .

AUGUST 2014 (24 of 46)

I am pleased to see our Monarchs have returned in more numbers this year ,so far I have counted 30 since the beginning of summer and that is a lot compared to the past year or so as the numbers of them declined . I had 5 out there with me today all fluttering about from wild flower to wild flower  but they didn’t want to get together for me so I could take more then one at a times photo , oh well guess ya cant have everything can ya !

                 Then on the way back to the house I saw this interesting weaving of webs in my garden by the driveway so of course I thought cool I have to get a shot of this lol  !

                                      So that was my walk in the fields again today a place where I can spend hours in lol

                                                                 and usually do with camera in hand of course   !

                                                                             Until next time my friends !

You have a beautiful series here. I have to say that the fungi looks so good it almost cannot be real.

Willow said...

What a great photo of the fungi !

William Kendall said...

Beautiful shots, particularly the monarch.

Bethany Carson said...

Lovely photos of the butterflies! The fungi shot is pretty neat!

I'm happy to read that you are finding more's worrisome that there are not that many out there. All of ours have left for somewhere else, or at least I hope that's what happened to them.

And I wish I could find some Queen Anne's lace around here, but not much is to be found.

These are really beautiful photos, Elaine. It's so nice that the Monarchs seem to be more plentiful this year. Have a great day tomorrow. Pam

The butterflies are beautiful aren't they, and your photos are too. It certainly looks as though the spiders have been doing some intense work outside your house!!! xx
