I took another vacation day yesterday. I had some chores to do–I cut down an old elm tree to use for firewood and did a few other things around the house.
It was a magnificant October day in Iowa, and I did find a little bit of time to walk around with my camera.
Butterflies are still hanging around in the unseasonably warm weather, although there are not as many as there were a few weeks ago, and obviously not as many species. The flowers they look to for nectar are mostly dried out. Soon they will be gone for the winter, not to return until early March if we are lucky, or late April if we are not.
Here is a Peck’s skipper that I saw yesterday.
