Mellow park deer -- the idiot behind us leaned on his horn because we were stopped (in the park) to take a quick photo. Kept chewing, returned to grazing.
Single glossy leaf on ground -- oak woodlands. No flowers yet!
AKA Hooker's Fairy Bells.
#2 - Basking in a low bush.
Shady oak woodland. About 1/2" long.
Another prize-winning photo.
More numerous than last week -- saw perhaps 20, both males and females.
Unusually large with paler patches on forewing. Not shiny.
On unmowed lawn.
She was into him, but he was more into himself. Finally she closed her wings, gave up and left. His response: go get a drink.
Doing a bit of mating -- until they were rudely interrupted by a third CTM trying to get in on the action. After brief chaos they resumed.
Lovely photo eh?
