At Singapore Chinese Garden.

This was back in June on our trip through Central Oregon. This unique site is waaaaay out in the middle of nowhere. When I finally got there, I was disappointed that there was this blinding white haze hanging from the sky and was afraid all the pictures would be crap. That's what they looked like on the LCD screen. But the haze actually let some of the subtleties of the color variations come out.

 

You are looking 35 million years into the past.

Building a nest is hard work!

Painted lady butterflies aren't limited to the U.S. or even North America. In fact, they are found on all continents except Antarctica. It is the most widely-distributed butterfly in the world.

Thanks for your visit and taking the time to comment so I can visit your photos, too... very much appreciated! My apologies if I cannot reply to all the comments. Have a great day!

Peeling Paint makes some nice abstract pattern on this old window frame, shot in North Carolina.

Painted Stork has a heavy yellow beak with a down-curved tip that gives it a resemblance to an ibis. The head of the adult is bare and orange or reddish in colour. The long tertials are tipped in bright pink and at rest they extend over the back and rump. There is a distinctive black breast band with white scaly markings. The band continues into the underwing coverts and the white tips of the black coverts give it the appearance of white stripes running across the underwing lining.

A pity that they are not perched closer together and that he looks so grumpy. Taken in Florida last February.

Thank you for looking!

I don't want summer to end without posting a butterfly. Here is a Painted Lady, and as you can see it was well aware that I was taking its photograph. How lucky we are to be able to observe with our macro lens their tiny lives.

 

Butterflies have been the inspiration of so many fairy tales and fantastic stories, and there are so many more things that I can say about them, but for now I'm going to stop there :)

Photography is one of my passions, and nature photography is my favorite.

 

I have been in Explore for more that a hundred times, and it is an awesome experience to have your photos showcased in such a special way.

 

I thank your for coming today, for leaving a comment, and make a favorite of yours this photo, (if that is the case) thanks again!

 

The best part of this forum is the contacts and friends that I have made over the years, that have the same passion for this art that is called photography!

After the processing, this song popped up in my head:

'Paint It Black' by The Rolling Stones.

The first to lines are:

""I see a red door and I want it painted black.

No colours anymore, I want them to turn black.""

 

Sweet memories of Schiermonnikoog ;-))

Happy weekend!

An Australian painted lady, Vanessa kershawi, feeding on the Jervis Bay Grevillea, Grevillea macleayana, at Hyams Beach, Jervis Bay, Australia.

 

The markings of the Australian painted lady are similar to the Northern Hemisphere painted lady, Vanessa cardui.

 

Thanks for visiting. I am very grateful for the very kind comments and faves which have been left.

 

Have a wonderful week!

  

Something to brighten up a rubbish day

In the Darkness of the Night

It’s nice to have a Candlelight

It fills the Air with a magic Flair

This lovely and romantic Atmosphere

Is Balm for our Soul

But Feelings might get out of Control

There’s nothing better

Than a Candlelight Dinner

Especially in the Night

Of a very cold Winter

Some wildlife scenes simply look better on black. Painted Lady on a Zinnia.

The Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui, Syn: Cynthia cardui) is a butterfly of the family Nymphalidae.

After many hours and a few hundred images at very high ISO at a blind I was able to salvage a few images.

When the rain just takes a rest

In the morning with my head

I just keep on rolling

I keep rolling on the grass

Rolling with my dress

And turn around again

Then I look around me

I can’t see , I can’t see my colors there

And I need to paint the wall

I need to paint it all

Feeling my colors

White colors white

 

And I want to paint it all

I want to paint it all

I want to paint it all

white colors, white

I want to paint it all

I want to paint it all

I want to paint it all

white colors, white

 

All those famous faces laugh

Masterpieces of the past

I can see them rolling

There ́s no picture about me

About what I do believe

I can ́t see my future there

And I want to kill them all

All my idols on the wall

Feeling my colors

White colors ...white

 

And I want to paint it all

I want to paint it all

I want to paint it all

white colors, white

I want to paint it all

I want to paint it all

I want to paint it all

white colors, white

 

All those famous faces laugh

Masterpieces of the past

The painted stork (Mycteria leucocephala) is a large wader in the stork family. It is found in the wetlands of the plains of tropical Asia south of the Himalayas in the Indian Subcontinent and extending into Southeast Asia. Their distinctive pink tertial feathers of the adults give them their name. They forage in flocks in shallow waters along rivers or lakes. They immerse their half open beaks in water and sweep them from side to side and snap up their prey of small fish that are sensed by touch. As they wade along they also stir the water with their feet to flush hiding fish. They nest colonially in trees, often along with other waterbirds. The only sounds they produce are weak moans or bill clattering at the nest. They are not migratory and only make short distance movements in some parts of their range in response to changes in weather or food availability or for breeding. Like other storks, they are often seen soaring on thermals.

The Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui, Syn: Cynthia cardui) is a butterfly of the family Nymphalidae.

When you travel to the Painted Hills, you can see millions of years of history revealed in the layers of mountains of earth, one color at a time. The hills get their name from the delicately colored stratifications in the soil and the yellows, golds, blacks, and reds of the Painted Hills are best seen in the late afternoon. Tones and hue may appear to change from one visit to another, as the claystones differ with ever-changing light and moisture levels. Once you see them for yourself, it’s pretty easy to understand why the Painted Hills are one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon.

Thank you for your visit and comments be well! :)

Vanessa cardui is a well-known colorful butterfly, known as the painted lady, or formerly in North America as the cosmopolitan. This is one of the butterflies that are always around our gardens.

 

One more of that fabulous place, just because this one was so different being all by itself.
