Bird's Foot Trefoil & friend


Again, I did not notice the critter till I downloaded the photos.  This was taken at the strip pit tonight.  It is the first time I have went out on a late evening ramble in a long time.  I have a few new photos to show, but won't show them all tonight.


This milkweed blooms were across a rough area...I still have to really watch where I walk so this was taken from a distance.


I have a couple other shots of milkweed but will save them for another day.

Splendid close-ups - I particularly like the composition and feel of that last image.

Lovely bugs--- no, really. I'm not a bug fan, but they're neat!

Hurrah, a visit to the strip pit! I LOVE your photos! I would never know they were taken from a distance! Hard to choose a favorite, but this Milkweed closeup is gorgeous. Can't wait to see the rest.

Wonderful pictures. Bird's Foot Trefoil, as soon as I saw that name, I knew that this was the answer to my question. These are growing all over the ditches around here and I just couldn't think of the name. I knew what they were but the name was gone, so Thanks.

You always find interesting things to take pictures of at the strip pit, Rose. The milkweed blooms are so lovely. Yes, be careful where you walk.

Have a peaceful weekend.

Nice capture of the critter. I think milkweed is a good plant to attract butterflies.

It's always fun when you find a critter in your shot and didn't know it was there. Great shots. I need to get out, but it has been so hot.
