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