STOPS ALONG THE WAY

WHERE HAVE ALL THE SKIPPERS GONE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Skipper -2

We’re starting to enter that part of the summer when you get the first sense that the season is slowly coming to a close. Every time I notice some wildflowers begin to fade or not catch sight of a certain bird or insect I’ve seen all along, I feel time moving on and know that summer is growing short. These photographs were taken in June. I saw some skippers in July but it’s been several weeks since I’ve seen any. Cabbage Whites seem to be in the majority lately. There are still plenty of sunny hot days to enjoy but as a northern country we hold these days particularly dear and just wish they’d last a bit longer.

  2. Love these photo’s Belinda and I love skippers. Can’t say that there are less this summer but I did not see many different skippers.

  3. Great macros, particularly the second. I’m noticing this too with the birds in our yard. Far quieter than it was in July. Still enjoying the beautiful weather though.

  6. So you’ve noticed it, too, eh? Well expressed. 🙂 Immersed in nature as we are, we’re pretty sensitive to the changes.
    These are terrific captures!

  10. I miss monarchs. I have only seen one this year. I hear that wind turbines are decimating them, an unfortunate victim of the war on climate change.
