I had a heck of a time getting pics of this busy-body black-capped chickadee. It seemed intent on picking at a dead leaf, not sure why. Maybe gathering ants or ? on it.
The fritillaries were out and about in flocks yesterday. This one is on goldenrod.
This would've been a better shot if I'd been able to squat down, but there was grass in the way that I needed to shoot over. Mr. Froggie was trying to blend into the background when I stumbled upon him on this mossy plant in a small stream in the NE Hills.
The white water crowfoot grows all over creeks and is in full swing right now. Again, much more abundant this year than in recent years past. From the buttercup family. I was trying to get a shot of the crowfoot when I discovered the frog. That's the awesome thing about photographing nature...always surprises, unexpected treasures to be found.
