The Florida Azalea which is a native rhododendron as well. A butterfly of some sort resting and blending into a leaf. Some Oak Hoppers.




Was going to hang out another few hours but I’ve not eaten since 11am yesterday and I’m starving. Going to get some vegetarian “tofu” sweet yellow curry.

From the back porch after an ugly, overcast day:

The sun is shining up from the horizon onto the bottom of the clouds and turning the trees behind me all golden.

Those are lovely photos, @RichardG . Thank you for sharing them!
Michiganders love lakes. They make us happy.

I don’t know Michigan, having never crossed “the Pond”, but it is the contrast between the lakes and the surrounding hills that makes it so spectacular. I am guessing that Lake Michigan is probably bigger than all of the Cumbrian lakes put together.

Your lakes and hills are beautiful. We have very few hills in Michigan. Our lakes are contrasted with beautiful forests, and the big lakes have beautiful, large beaches. It’s a different style of beauty.

I hope you get to see them sometime.

And I hope to see your Lake District as well.

Please allow me an indulgence. While in the Lake District we went to the local Zoo where they had a live flying display. This is the Harris Hawk coming into land

I had to crop the picture to make it fill the screen but apart from that it is untouched.

Thousands of years ago Oregon had numerous lakes that are no longer here due to our heavy rainfall (like just last week we had six inches in one day): lakes overflow, which cuts the exit channel deeper each time, until there’s just the river flowing through.

You couldn’t resize it? I use that feature a lot because I hate losing anything in photos!

Somewhere in northwestern California–

Thanks!
I read this interesting article in the BBC recently, about how redwoods are “thriving in the UK”! @RichardG , have you seen some? Apparently, well-to-do Victorians brought them over.
Thanks.

It was on the left side of the frame with only blurred background to the right of it. I was lucky to get what I did. You should see the failures.(deleted of course)

You are very talented!

I only know the twice stabbed beetle. Not sure what the caterpillars are.



This is the live oak tussock caterpillar. Cool and pretty. Painful to hold with your hands.

We’re still waiting for spring here in New England, so all I’ve got is the center of a fading paperwhite from the living room.

Awesome–thank you! I was not able to see this while at work (I knew there would be good photos, and this is wonderful)–that’s great! The light looked odd out our window, though

Hiking yesterday I came across a pine tree with a bunch of fuzzy caterpillars and noticed that every one of them was on a tip of a twig that had been cut off (to keep the trail clear). I should have pulled out my phone and gotten a picture.
