Helen: A beautiful capture of the swallowtail on the thistle. A really cool saying.

Lovely photograph. I noticed some thistle growing on my road the other day but before I had a chance to take a picture the town mower went by and mowed it down.

Very interesting (and scary) article. Thanks for linking to it.

June said...

Troubling indeed! This is downright depressing!

Worrisome indeed. Going back one post I have never seen a sandhill in a residential area or next to a tree! Here we see them in fields, grassland and marshes. Never in a wooded area. Fascinating

Indeed worrisome.
While we did out part in changing the climate, we're unable to put a stop to it.
But we could put a stop to this:

Beautiful flower. You add the best saying to your photos

FG, thanks for your (always) kind words.

John - right in keeping with the worries - "cut it down, kill it, pave it over..."

Caroline & June - Yeah...

Troutbirder - the crane was along a country road - my stepson says they hang out there all the time...another of my stepsons lives on a lake further south - they have a pair and one young one - he says they come right up in the yards...???

klaus - can't get the link to work

tommy - thanks

I know you used this quote before me...I can only imagine that brilliant minds (and I use that term loosely when describing myself) think alike! A wonderful quote, and a beautiful photograph, Helen.

I just saw my 1st swallowtail - yours is beautiful. Sad to read that article - worried about what we're doing to our environment and the wildlife.

That *is* worrisome Helen. So much of what we do today, and what we did yesterday, is going to be revealed to be damaging like this. So sad...

Wonderful greeting Helen!
I wouldn't worry too much Helen, the earth is an amazing entity. It has a way of taking care of itself! We can do our part but it'll always have the last word!

One word - lovely!
