Why does your post refer to E.B. White?Your State Flower is, indeed, delicate. My state's flower is the Waratah. One would be hard-pressed to call it delicate.
Julie, As an English major and former classroom teacher, lately I've been having fun with birthdates of notable people in the arts. I just like to call attention to talent, whether or not you might be a fan. Now I have to look up your flower!
I just googled your flower; indeed it is not delicate but the image I just saw on the internet is beautiful!
You captured the butterfly so well, excellent!
A jackpot day!
You truly are striking it rich with photos, Kate!
Oh it is brilliant. I didn't know the pink ladyslipper was the Minnesota state flower. I have seen them in the wood while in Maine a few years ago but only just that one time.
That's called a 'hat trick' in cricket talk Kate :) The markings are so perfectly symmetrical and beautiful, super capture.
Beautiful and perfectly photographed!
love these amazing beauties.
Three's a charm!
Hello, beautiful capture of the butterfly. And the Lady Slippers are so pretty, great finds. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post! Have a happy weekend!
I love seeing these beauties in the garden all summer.
Very pretty butterfly. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, that's a lot of great things to photograph in one day! Lucky you!
And Max Ehrman to you! Lovely photo, but must say it's your eye, or perhaps your brain, I admire... to photograph something, one must first be able to see - and appreciate - it's beauty.
If I had a hammer,I'd hammer out a beeThen you'd know Just how lucky you could beFor in the tree A hammering treeThere was a flowerAnd a flutterby and a beeWhich is all very niceBut your should knowYour state's real birdIs the mosquito!
Wow! That's a great looking butterfly.
You hit the jackpot for sure! Nice shot!
Gorgeous shot! What a treat to see!
Beautiful close up.
Lovely Tiger Swallowtail!! I saw a bunch in W.V. a month or so ago, but they stayed in the trees...no low flowers were enticing enough.~
What a beautiful shot of a swallowtail.
A lovely tiger swallowtail. They are right up their with monarchs in my hall-of-butterfly-fame.
Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
