My Personal 365 Day Project “Just Shoot Me” Day 87 – August 3, 2012
Canon Rebel T3i 600D – Corel Paintshop Pro x4 – Sherman, Texas, USA
Featured in:


The already blooming hosta plant I purchased a couple weeks ago and planted in my north Texas garden has proved itself worth the $6. When I water the garden the blooms are just low enough to catch the sprinkles from my soaker hose and attract all kinds of insects that come to drink. Today it was this lovely Colorado Hairstreak Butterfly. There is a cricket nymph on the bloom behind her but she took front stage in this photo.

I am an amateur photographer who takes a walk nearly every day with my camera shooting whatever interests me.

When I get home I peruse my images until I find the ONE that will go into my Redbubble portfolio that day.

Please stop by and see what I added today.
