While I love buckeye butterflies, the last one with the fog rising is my favorite. While you are starting into fall, I'm still waiting for summer. I'm not complaining, it's been very pleasant weather so far. It's just that I can't believe we'll escape to winter without some really hot weather and our usual Santa Ana winds.

So I guess I'll just enjoy all of your late summer/early fall shots, they are always so enjoyable.

Nice series Mole! I love the damsels and dragons... Now I'm motivated to do some macro and more hummingbird shoots very soon. The hummers will probably be gone within the month...

Cheers,
Marc

NMR - Thanks so much - glad you enjoyed these. Our park lake is often "decorated" with rising mist in the early morning, fun to try to photograph...

Lou - Thanks! Sounds like a great time on the mountain, wish you could have photographed them too...

GW - Thanks so much! We've had a great year for butterflies - will have to email you some!

MtnMan - So glad you liked them!

Harriet - Isn't it interesting how climate varies across our continent! We had a record-breaking hot summer, and are really looking forward to fall's coolness...

Marc - Thanks for your kind words. I always look forward to seeing your amazing photos!

I forgot to ask: which species of butterfly in the bottom of post #4 and all of #5 is it. Obviously similar to a Common Buckeye, but much larger - for those who don't know, the Common Buckeye is a relatively small butterfly. It's very similar to a Great Spangled, but those "eyes" are the giveaway that it is neither species I've mentioned.

Survey says?

Marc - Thanks for asking - it is a common buckeye - just "up close & personal."
