Zabulon Skipper Butterfly - Poanes zabulon - Female by 

These little butterflies were fairly common last summer and this female and her gentleman caller were in full courting behavior. All the pheromones must have been filling the air because I watched the wing-quivers, the gentle pursuits.

This picture was taken August 22, 2012, in Green Lane, Pennsylvania.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
