Tiny Creatures For Nature Notes

We've had several sudden showers this past week and the temperature has come down.
Amid my portulacas and bachelor buttons, I often see the tiniest of skippers feeding on the blooms.

Here's one of the blues on a Polyscias some time after the rain stopped.
Another skipper feeds on a yellow portulaca.
But yesterday's sunshiny day was much welcome. More chores get done when the clouds are gone. The best was the sight of the crescent moon shining through the leaves of my berry tree.

Visit the home of Nature Notes to see what's happening in the world of nature.

Its great to have these critters visiting your garden, rendering it vibrant with life energies. Love the last image of the crescent moon.

You got such great clear shots of these little guys! Not easy, I know - they don't stay still for long.

Oh lovely shots of the little skippers Kanak. They are so hard to capture and mine are all gone now. Thank you for your comments regarding my Mother's illness. I really appreciate the support..Michelle

Just back from a trip to Ooty to see the Kurinji flowers carpeting the hillside. Please see my blog Indian Flowers and herbs.
