I was up and out early again this morning, and fog once more shrouded everything. I went to the local lake this time, where I took photos of a duck, then visited a small freshwater marsh not far from my home. Not much was going on there, and then I suddenly spotted a gulf fritillary butterfly on a small bush. It was covered in dew and in that half-frozen state where they aren’t quite moving yet.
What a lucky find!
It was half-hidden by leaves, but I managed to get fairly good shots without disturbing it.
I searched for other butterflies, or even dragonflies, but didn’t find any. I then stopped by R’s. His yard is full of plants, bushes, flowers, and trees, but the only thing I saw was a lizard. Even he had a fine mist of dew on him, courtesy of the fog. You’ll see that if you click for the larger photo.
Gee, getting up early does seem to have its good points. 🙂
