Egg-Laying Butterfly

 Earlier in June I watched this Black Swallowtail Butterfly
(I think that is correct - but please correct me if I am wrong)
laying her eggs on what I think is fennel.

I was fortunate to be able to capture an image
of her laying one of her eggs.  This was such
an amazing sight to see!

Pretty Pollinator - Pipevine Swallowtail Butterfly

                                                             Smile awhile, 
And while you smile, 
Another smiles, 
And soon there's miles 
And miles of smiles, 
And life's worth while 
Because you smile.

Midsummer Days

"The wood's green heart is a nest of dreams, 
The lush grass thickens and springs and sways, 
The rathe wheat rustles, the landscape gleams— 
Midsummer days! Midsummer days!"
