So hot, these past two days and my photos are all about water. Yesterday's luminosity/reflection photo was taken at the pond behind my house. I had seen the stump last week on a walk and was hoping that I could either get that or a blooming lily pad with a reflection. But there were no lilies in bloom yesterday, however, there was this spider web that I could have used. My eyes were drawn to the flowers on the bush in the light and the web looked wispy until I got the photo downloaded where I then saw the spider web. This photo on the left was cropped to highlight the spiderweb. Overall, the picture I chose is a much better picture with the lighting and the reflections of the stump and reeds on the shore.
Today's photo was taken right before my cousin/aunt and I were getting ready to go out floating. I was suppose to get the number 3, but unless I stopped on the highway today to get a picture of the moose crossing sign for 3 miles sign, I wasn't seeing threes. Three ducks made the cut instead. It was hot and muggy today especially after we did a 2 mile walk. Floating on the pond was a great way to spend the afternoon and we had a friend join us. With the poison ivy that I am now sporting on my forearm, the cool water was perfect.
Yesterday's Texture Tuesday photo made me realize that I don't know the name of butterflies that are in my garden. A commenter had provided the name of yesterday's butterfly, which was a Great Spangled Fritillary. We had a butterfly hanging out in the liatris yesterday and I took way too many pictures. This appears to be a Eastern Tiger Swallowtail based on matching it with a butterfly found at www.gardenswithwings.com. It's another tattered wing butterfly.
