|Unknown butterfly on rose|
|Dictamnus angustifolius in bud|
We got much better pictures of the gas plant in full bloom and fresher flowers on the rose--but did I ever get a good picture of that knotweed? And look! the giant flowered Hypericum in the distance!
All these glimpses from a single hill at the other side of the planet--taken on a short hike--and captured in a sheaf of images that no one would see if it weren't for this blog. And to think I have many thousands, possible tens of thousands, of these ultimately forgettable, reduplicative, or just plain mediocre images that would never fit in a talk or an article or book--but take an inordinate amount of space on the hard disk--waiting...waiting...for a disk crash? Or for some other eventuality.
Meanwhile, June 24, 2009 at approximately 10:00AM has come back to life again for a while on my blog.
