I quick hike with my husband on Hot Springs Mountain between storms revealed lovely wings. A weak and delicate Hackberry Emperor Butterfly was perched gracefully above the hot water cascade. Several Mockingbirds were in a fight over two berry laden Trees. They created a lively sight as they sang, flew, dove and chased each other among the branches. A flowering bush attracted a migrating visitor to it’s sweet fragrance. A beautiful Monarch Butterfly was feeding on the sweet nectar in each blossom.
No matter how short a Nature break is always soothing for the soul.
Love to ALL!
Short but sweet. One thing not photographed were dozens of people and dogs which tends to deter a great bit of the nature. Tomorrow we’ll got on a more isolated trail. Great photos anyway; and of course the mockingbirds are glorious. Love ur LH Rick x0xx0x0
