This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.
... I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.......Psalm23:6

Every evening I go outside for a few moments. I see the same faces......well the same critters ....pretty much the same every evening. Tonight I got a surprise, I could not believe my eyes. I dont know why, we have hummingbirds around all the time. They don't generally hang out in my garden though. I saw one last year. It almost hit me in the head.
Well as I was trying to get a better picture of the butterfly I see each evening, I got the above picture. He didn't sit still long enough for me to get a real good picture but I will be watching for him now, you can be sure of that.
This is the other picture but its still not good.


In the sort of light I was dealing with he was in shade most of the time. He sat in the apple tree but the branches were in the way, I moved around for a better angle but he was done and off he went. Maybe tomorrow?
