  3. Absolutely breathtaking!!! The butterfly on the zinnia brought a nostalgic smile - my grandmother always planted them in her flower bed.

  13. I love your pictures, Steve. I miss the prairie. It's been too long - nearly a year. :( Tell her hello for me, if you please.

  15. So different from my native New England with its woods and tree shaded paths - someday I will visit the prairie; meanwhile I can come here :)

  16. Is the lake in your back yard? Your butterflies have such nice bright flowers to land on. Ours are fading to drab. I think partly from so much rain early on and now dry ground with thick humidity.

  18. Hope you had a good time on your getaway. It looks as if you were in a truly beautiful setting. The last image of the lake and the one of the tall stem of yellow flowers against the background of sky were two of my favorites.
