the works of the Creator

The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the works of the Creator.

Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible.

Alfalfa

I found many different shades of alfalfa this summer.  My fave, of course, is purple.

vervain

I have some serious catching up to do here.  I took these pics over two weeks ago out at Piers Gorge.  I have more flower pics from that outing, but I want to devote this post entirely to Vervain, because it is my favorite wildflower. It seems to like moist areas, because I find it in ditches and near rivers.  The blossoms are actually a much deeper, richer shade of purple than what shows here.  I can’t seem to capture their true color, no matter how I set the camera.

freedom

This is the butterfly that I featured in the previous post.  It came out of its chrysalis at 7:34 am, and I took it outside at around 1:30 pm.  I put it in the daylilies, where it sat for awhile, then flew away.  I took a walk last night and found 3 more caterpillars, who are now happily munching away on milkweed in the butterfly house.

I figured since I was right there, I might as well get some shots of the rain on the daylilies.

monarch project 2010

One day last week I woke up to find a new butterfly had emerged during the night.  I released it and waited for the other chrysalis to produce the next butterfly.  The following pictures are of the butterfly I found that morning.  Tomorrow I will post the pics I got of the next butterfly after it came out of its chrysalis.
