Arnada Neighborhood Beauties. . .

Not sure if this is a butterfly but I have seen lots of them around this summer and only one Tiger Swallowtail the whole year. This one kept flitting around so fast that it was hard to get a photo of it. It will look better if you CLICK on it and enlarge it.
If you only CLICK ON one of these to see details, this is the one! (Well, maybe the last one also . . . ) The various shades of pink are so much more visible when you do!

I have no idea what this is growing in a flower bed near the curb with the street in the background but it definitely looks better when you enlarge it.

I think this is a flower gone to seed. It is my favorite --if you didn't enlarge the others, at least do this one to see all the details.

wow, it sure makes a difference when you enlarge the photos. Great detail in them all.

I thought it might be one of those yellow sulfur butterflies when you said it was really flitting around. After clicking on the photo I'm not so sure. You were right...the detail on that last flower is fantastic!

The white butterfly in the first photo looks like a cabbage white butterfly...

These are fabulous! I clicked on them and it does make a difference. The PINK flower is just gorgeous!! And I love the one gone to seed too! Soon there will be more and more of these!

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
