Carletta, Your photos never fail to please. The coneflower has seen better days after suffering through this blazing heat, but still has something to offer the butterfly. Great post, as usual. Have a lovely weekend. Mickie ;)

That is just wonderful Carletta! Just the perfect moment perfectly captured. The color contrast is great to look at.

I don't have the right e-mail address for you so I'll answer your question on my tree people here. They were part of the crowed at the Oregon CountRy Fair (NOT the county fair). It is an environmentally oriented counter-culture event where costumes are normal! I posted about it earlier this summer, but should have included a link on my silly little post.
