Today’s fishin’ trip yielded more photos than fish, but who could pass this up! The fish will still be there next time I visit.

It is always worth while to spend time by the river because there’s almost always something beautiful there and today’s visit was no exception.

This afternoon while stalking a wildflower, I was very pleased when this little guy came along and graciously stayed to pose for his portrait. I think he’s related to one I came across last July.

He appears to have a lot of attitude for a little critter only an inch tall!

He would be a good mascot for a sports team: “The fighting butterflies”!
