I don’t know why this sticker on a sign cracked me up. It was obviously an aftermarket addition!
You can probably guess that I didn’t take this photo today. But I thought we could all do with a splash of summer about now! This butterfly is collecting nectar (and inadvertently, pollen) from a thistle. I got in close to really show the beauty of both. The flower, as you may know, is the national flower of Scotland-land of my birth. This butterfly has been through the wars (look at his ragged wing) but keeps on going. Perhaps he is Scottish too!
It was a windy day in the neighbourhood! Loads of things were flung around, and this garbage can was a hapless victim.
As you may know already, I love reflections! Here is Milwaukee’s Cathedral reflected in a window. I took the photo at an angle to create the ‘runway’ in the sky – lights behind the window. I spent a few moments trying to work out whether the window edge on the upper right lends a welcome clue to the fact this is a window reflection, or is just distracting clutter. What do you think? Please feel free to comment.
Branches from fallen trees were stacked up in a pyramid on the track where I run.
