Photo of the week

My first in a series of weekly posts, where I show you a photo I took, throw in a little background … short and sweet!

Buckeye wing in spider web

A bright color caught my eye as I glanced out my bedroom window.  This is one wing of a buckeye butterfly, caught in a spider’s web. Buckeye butterflies are common in our area.  Below is a photo I took last year.

And one of my favorite kaleidoscopes, which I made by blending copies of my photograph of a buckeye. Have you seen buckeyes in your yard?  This is the wikipedia entry, if you want to learn more.
