The widening solar arc will soon reach zenith marking a change in seasons. The days of the full sun are at hand. The tiny Skipper butterfly rests easy in the shade as the sunbeam steadily ebbs closer. Like the ticking of a clock light flows through the porus canopy until it caresses the tiny wings. In response the wings slowly begain to pump distributing life giving warmth throughout the tiny body. The little Skipper suddenly explodes into the air flashing it colors as your flies. Then as I look around my forest I see them all as they wake from their slumber.
They all go to work without any delay. The wild hydrangea has finally bloomed and it’s their task to sip the nectar and spread the pollen.

Great shot Lloyd! I love how the butterfly is the only thing in focus. ❤ The way the light is catching it's wing makes it look like a highly reflective surface.

Thank you so much Frances ❤ . The white spots are fairly reflective and thought to be like flashing a strobe light in the eyes of any predator birds that come after them.
