Orange Crush



Sometimes I get so caught up in my own problems that I forget how amazing the world is.
Wendelin Van Draanen


I am amazed at what can be found on a blade of grass. I don't know what type of butterfly this is (I know I say that a lot) I "think" it is some type of skipper. It is much smaller than most skippers I've seen.
