black and white Wednesday ~ late Summer

butterfly WM

Autumn to winter, winter to spring,
Spring into summer, summer into fall--
So rolls the changing year, and so we change;
Motion so swift, we know not that we move.

Celebrate each season, for you too, are transformed with the turns of the earth.

Two images I captured this week
of some of the beautiful flora and fauna that is here in early September.

I don't know how much longer that will be though...
Fall is definitely in the air!

Gail - these are spectacular shots. The butterfly is almost surreal. Really great.

Thanks for sharing some of your garden beauty. I'd been looking forward to it all summer.

Yes, fall is in the air already. But we still have a few days ahead of us with that mixed thing we get more and more of. You know the kind where you're sweating...but you need a sweater!!

Have a great week!

Well, as a northerner, I have to say that I appreciate the color shots this week better than the b&w because I know just how fast the b&w season is coming!

Gail, these are stunning.

Hope you had a nice little get away in Chicago. I was thinking of you.

What beautiful photos! I'm not sure if I like the color or b&w better. Each one lends it own beauty to the photo. So happy you were able to capture the essence of your garden before it succumbs to the cooler weather.

Happy Wednesday to you!

Gail, these are AWESOME!! The color and the detail is so gorgeous, yet in black and white they evoke an entirely different mood...... I love both versions!

Fall is in the air here and I am loving every minute of it.

Happy Weekend~
