Summer Returns

With the record rains of Thursday it was easy to get the feeling that summer was gone and the rainy season was here.  But warm sunshine returned yesterday, Friday, and all the bugs and birds reappeared. While walking along the Beaver Marsh Trail I noticed this butterfly.  It kept stopping along the trail just ahead of me tempting me to take a photo.  I obliged, and when I turned around to leave it flew up ahead appearing to want more photos taken.  In whatever direction I would move it would move just ahead of me. I ended up with forty photos just of this butterfly.  It’s a Lorquin’s Admiral, and the most common butterfly I have seen this summer. Makes me think that maybe the summer is not over yet.
