Strange Blossoms

gentianFriends, hopping around the tall grass prairie remnant in Iowa last week, we found bottle gentian in a beautiful shade of blue. I photographed from several different angles but liked this one the best because it includes the leaves.  These are not buds but are blossoms that are closed on top, Is the grass behind, distracting? til Tomorrow MJ

 

Eyespots

buckeyeFriends, went south for the weekend to Iowa to explore some tall grass prairie.  Found this butterfly, the common buckeye, very pretty but perched in lots of junk, so had to blur out the background.  Photoshop to the rescue.  Don’t you just love the eyespots, my friend is in opthalmology so this butterfly is for her, enjoy til Tomorrow MJ
