Elusive butterfly

We were in Seattle recently and this butterfly was wandering through the flowers next to the sidewalk as I walked along. I let the others walk along without me while I stopped to spend some time with my new BFF. He proved pretty elusive. (Wait, wasn't that a song?).

Flower opens for business

Some flowers seem to hide their pollen and nectar displays down deep in a petal tunnel.  Not this one. It's open for business - clearly visible from all directions.

Lily life is sweet on the river

These lily pads get to play in the sun on the tranquil Rio Dulce (sweet river)in Guatemala. We took the boat ride up from Livingston two years ago. Along the way, scenery was amazing cliffs and hillsides along with waterfront bungalows where the locals lived and earned their living. Sweet River, sweet life.

Sun worshiping

This sun worshiping perennial was on the side of the road at J.J. Mayes Wildlife Trace just to the east of Houston, Texas, when I stopped there several years ago. The nature preserve is on the Houston side of the bridge over the San Jacinto River near Wallisville.
