This is the first time I met this species of bee.

I would say it is very alert and I'm really worried abot it's sting!

Lots of Gatekeeper butterflies, on bramble...have discovered they feed on bramble flowers, spotted on the sunny side, in a country park/nature reserve in Cambridgeshire, during dog walk. It seems this particular one is possibly a rare Gatekeeper. WP_20170709_09_01_57_Pro

Enjoy a beautiful Wednesday, my friends!

A rare view, why, because it's a pano taken with the i-phone.. If you wanted to see this view taken from the slope of Knott Rigg you would be hard pressed to see it as one view.. that's why it's always best to see these in the largest size and pan across, then you get to see what the eye sees as it looks around this glorious spot :-)


Hit the link below and you will see what I mean :-)

Turkeybeard....Xerophyllum asphodeloides (L.) Nutall.

NOTE: The mysterious haze surronding the flower is moisture on my lens...I placed my camera in my backpack and hiked about a mile and climed a steep ridge to get to this was extremely hot and sweat got in my backpack and moisture formed on my lens....I snapped the shot before it had time to clear.

'~ RARE WILDFLOWER ~' On Black: See your photos in a new light

Count your nights by stars and shadows.

Count your days by smiles not tears.

And on any birthday morning, count your age by friends, not years.


This rare glass hummingbird feeds at night and puts off a warm light. Have a great day.

A random guy at the Dallas Arboretum said this flower only blooms one day per year in these lily pads. So there it is... a blooming flower. Also, he made a comment to suggest my M9 was an inexpensive point-and-shoot. So maybe he doesn't know much about cameras. Or flowers.

The metamorphosis to the 5th instar nymph of a Common Green Shieldbug is amazing!

I found it before others, if I may say so;-)

Chicago and Northwestern C628 6705 leads train #417 at Norma, in Des Plaines, Illinois, on June 3, 1974. The 6705 was the first of the C628's to be sidelined, and it served as a parts unit at Green Bay at least since August, 1976. Photos of this unit in green-and-yellow paint in the lead are extremely rare.

One of the few shots I got where I could shoot the ground and path of the canyon. Lots of people behind me probably didn't appreciate me holding them up, but oh well. Awesome canyon. So thankful to have been able to see it.

These beauties are very small and very quick.

Rice is the main food crop in our state….

God made this land with every climatic condition which is apt for rice cultivation…..

Once we had very green days about this cultivation….. But now days no one is much interested in cultivating rice, because it is less profitable than other cultivations …

And now we are not self sufficient in production of our food grain,….but still there are some true farmers who believe and know its values …..!!!!!!

Photoshopped. This is very rare for me to use. I believe that a photo should be taken and not made. I occasionally may crop my photos. But I quite like how this turned out

So rare that the last time I saw a Duke of Burgundy butterfly (Hamearis lucina) was 27th May 1990!!

I just had to share another image of our "June winter wonderland" . Everything was so beautiful ---a couple of hours later the snow was melting. The last time we had so much snow in June was approx 30 years ago. Photographed on June 6. 2009---Calgary, Aberta

Minneapolis, MN


I used to work construction and have never seen a structure built like this one. I wanted this image to stand out just as much as the building, so, I did black and white with partial selective color on the sun flare
