January Butterfly

Yes, it's winter, but we've had a couple of nice warm, sunny days.  As a result, there have been a number of critters on the move.  Today, while birding with some folks who were visiting from the western part of NC,  we got a treat.  An American Snout butterfly landed on a branch right in front of us.  Snouts are not a butterfly that I see very often so I was quite delighted!


Through My Office Window

My camera does not like rain so when it is wet out I resort to observing nature through the window panes.  
The rain didn't seem to bother these bucks though.  They were taking advantage of a picnic area empty of pesky people.

Happy New Year everyone!
