Butterfly

butterfly.jpgYou 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!

Cathedral Reflection

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?
