September Gatherings On Muddelty Creek

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Shared Sweetness 90820” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The gentle September sun washes over the marsh as I step out from the big blue truck. The melodic calls of the Red-winged Blackbird are notably absent from the soft breezes. Instead I hear the drone of grasshoppers on the edge of water where they can enjoy the tall grass. The swamp roses have shed their pedals and brilliant red orbs have begun to appear in the thorny branches. The Silky Dogwood now sports blue fruit among the reddish leaves all throughout the water’s edge. But God is not finished with the season of growth yet. Amid the fresh spires of cattails the Joe Pye weed is in full glory. The sweet smell of the bloom brings in the butterflies from all directions. They float in on sunbeams resembling shards of stained glass. The bountiful harvest of sweet nectar is gathered by all without jealousy. The bright yellow Swallowtail and spectacular monarch butterflies seem to enjoy fellowship with Pipevine and Spicebush alike. And deeper into the untamed wilderness I see blues and sulphur butterflies along with painted ladies and skippers. All have come to the delta to partake in celebration of last days of summer.

A Short Visit with a Tiger Swallowtail

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and Ironweed 90420a ” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The September sun smiles on an open field in the bottom-lands after a rain. The humid air is saturated with the smell of the ironweed. At first you only notice a single set of wings soaring in on the thermal eddies rising from the blacktop. Gentle tilts of the wings direct the Tiger Swallowtail towards it’s treasure. The Ironweed has just started coming into full bloom. The aroma has driven the butterflies into a frenzy and they’re coming from all directions. The Tiger Swallowtail circles over the engine of the big blue truck while gathering altitude before gliding down and coming to rest on the purple flowers. The old pasture has become a sea of purple and yellow flowers exploded into a grand finale of the summer season. I could spend the whole day photographing the butterflies and to my joy the honeybees are out in what seems to be full force gathering for their winter stores. But the road ahead calls me forward to my next destination.
