Flutter-bies and Friends…

P1170987 P1170915I got to go ‘birding’ again last week.  We hiked along a little string of lakes and wetlands and listened for birds… My most interesting find was the American Three-toed Woodpecker, apparently not a common find for most people—yay! I spotted something (though I had to be told what it was!)


I must confess I was soon distracted by things more easily seen and photographed–

like this “White Bog Orchid”…


And these sweet fairy bells—”Twinflowers”


And trying to name the trees.P1170939

And by the last stop I found myself stalking unidentified butterflies and dragonflies through a meadow-like marsh quite oblivious to birdsong…




And all this before ten in the morning.

Wonderful way to start the day!



Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. Ps.40:5 KJV
