Muddy knees, Wind Blown Seeds, and Butterflies

Yesterday and today I got outside and did a little bit of photography, after a hiatus that has been caused by weather and life events.

These are the seed pods of common milkweed.

Here is a single seed that has separated from the mass.

I did spot a single butterfly flying around today near our apple tree–an eastern comma I think.  Even though I had my camera at the time, I was not able to get a photo of it.

This butterfly was easier to photograph.  It no longer flaps its wings, but does blow around in the wind.  Thanks Mary Jones for a little bit of happiness you brought to my day.
