It seems it wouldn't be summer if I didn't chase a butterfly around the garden at least once. With all the construction going on out there this year, I haven't wanted to run around with my camera for fear of looking a bit... well you know, don't you?
Sadly one of our butterfly bushes had to be removed to make way for the new landscaping. However, the one right outside the kitchen window remains. Often when I am sitting here I see them gently gliding amongst the purple blossoms.
Beautiful, Graceful Works of Nature
They oftentimes fly off just when I'm about to snap the picture.
So I usually just snap~snap~snap away hoping for a good shot.
While waiting for my next opportunity to snap I couldn't help but notice this. One lone leaf already sporting it's fall finery. Uh Oh, can the rest be far behind?
Guess we better keep chasing summer while we still can.
