We went to Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie in IL yesterday and walked through the restored prairie land and I took some photos of course. It was a beautiful day.

There were a lot of these Skipper Butterflies and I managed to get a few good shots. Here is one but I'll share more as I get through them in editing.

Have a great week!

  1. But of course you would take pictures :) Love the butterfly, very pretty.

  2. Just stunning, Diane. Your macros are amazing.

  3. Thanks so much and I wouldn't think of going on a nature walk without taking lots of pictures. I do a very slow mile. LOL!

  4. I love skippers. This photo looks especially good to me right now because I just spent the day looking at the little creatures of nature like this one.
