Another terrific series Mole. I can't find a favorite so they are all winners!

Your moth is one of the woodland Forester Moths, the Grapevine Epimenis (Psychmorpha epimenis). Colorful little bugger, it is, as are many of the day-flying moths. Shows to go ya that all moths aren't dull brown camouflage jobs! The double bar only shows on the underside - the top has only one or none - I managed to find a picture that shows both sides:

Beautiful floral portraits, as usual. The blue Hepaticas are stunning - I like the second one best - less distraction from the foreground.

GW - Thanks! It is indeed a fine macro lens. And I'm glad KEH had a good cheap used one too!

Patty - Thanks! It is a great little hike - actually a very easy one - not much climbing, only 1 unbridged creek crossing that's usually easy to "rock hop," and only a few muddy places. You should come check it out someday!

Harriet - Thanks for the helpful critique! Not all our flowers are quite this pretty (although most are!), and you have sure posted some great ones from your region too!

Lou - Thanks for your kind words.

Penolta - Thanks for the ID - I should have remembered these little guys from last year, but... Glad you enjoyed the wildflowers too. I intend to go back there in a few days, to see what new blooms have arrived.

Ned - Thanks so much!

Your flower shots are, as always, very beautiful. They also serve as "therapy" to look at since we still have snow covering the ground.

Thanks for the photos! All the best.

Awesome pictures, I really like the first one of the trillium. And the blue hepaticas, I've never seen any that color!! Wow.

That moth is so cute too :-)

Mtnman - Thanks! We are indeed blessed with amazing floral diversity!

BlueSky - So glad you liked these. Laurel Run is one of the few places I've seen such blue hepaticas. Had to hang on to the side of the cliff to get this shot!
