Ode To A Butterfly

Butterfly, oh butterfly, why do you hide in the shadows? 
Spread wide your wings, let your heart sing
And come dance with me in the meadow

Butterfly, oh butterfly, why do you fear? 
You’ll never stray, I’ll lead the way
Just follow the path, I’ll be near

Butterfly, oh butterfly, have you no hope? 
Drink of the sun, our life’s just begun
Thro time’s hills and valleys we’ll lope 

Butterfly, oh butterfly, dare you to dream? 
On our hearts we depend, shall we follow the wind
And consign to the fates grander scheme?

Giant Mesquite Bug Photographed in The Sabino Canyon Riparian Area — Image by kenne

. . . I hope not!

And neither should the Giant Mesquite Bug found on Velvet Mesquite (or common mesquite) trees in the Tucson area. Not to worry, these bugs do little to no damage to our wonderful mesquite trees that help give the “lush” look to our desert community.


Capturing The Moment — Photographing The Insect World   Leave a comment

Grasshopper In Her Enviroment — Image by kenne

In all the years of photographing the world around us, I have never photographed insects. Admittedly, I have much to learn, however, with the help some Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) I have begun “Capturing the Moment” in the insect world. Capturing these images was make easier by having several trained eyes to help find insects. As I learn more and become better linked with naturalists, I hope to be bale to provide names of the insects in the photographs.
