Mole - THANK YOU for posting these beautiful photographs. Nothing shouts "He is risen!" quite like the beautiful sights of spring in the countryside!

Happy Easter, and again you astound with your beautiful nature so well taken.
I love the first shot, trails that lead to where ?, beauty and mystery...

Quite a bunch of beautiful butterflies (including TWO Zebras) - must have been a thrill to find. And I like the Ginger snaps (sorry - I couldn't resist)

Lovely series Mole - I particularly love those butterflies ! I just wish we had that variety - we just have a black (or dark brown) swallowtail here

A fantastic series, as always! Love the wild ginger, it looks like little animals.

Hope you and yours are OK after this week's tornadoes

Harriet - So glad you enjoyed the "puddle parties." Actually a rather common sight here in the late spring, in suitable habitat. Small muddy puddles on old gravel roads and puddles mildly contaminated with animal wastes are some of the best places to check.

Jdnan - AMEN!!

Rodney - Thanks for your kind words. Glad you enjoyed the mood of the trail shots - that's the mood I was aiming for...

Penolta - What a snappy joke! Actually, Zebra Swallowtails are about the commonest of our early spring swallowtails here at the lower elevations - we have LOTS of Paw Paw thickets in our park. Higher elevations have been full of Pipevine Swallowtails... Got a good snap of about 15 Zebras at a puddle the other day, will try to find time to post it soon...

Kevin - Glad you enjoyed them! Any idea what your species of Swallowtail is?

Keith - They are rather furry little flowers!
Thanks so much for your concern - recent storms did little damage to our home park, and all my family is fine. But there were some terrible tragedies not far from us. You may recall some of my photos of Painter Creek Falls and of Firescald Knob - communities near those two nearby locations were devastated.
