Along the river


 Cottonwoood bloooms
Along the river
Fluff and stuff
All over the bank.


 Missouri River

A leaf mimic perhaps?




 My 1st Monarch

 A raft of Twin Crested Cormorants

  6. I love cottonwoods but they are illegal in the city. Their 'cotton' clogs up too much stuff I guess. Not only can't you plant one but the city is cutting down all the ones in public spaces.

  12. I had to look twice at the "leaf mimic" to see the butterfly. I do believe it was mimicking the leaf. Maybe even flirting with it. Is there an eagle in the tree to the right of the dead tree?
