Eastern Tiger Swallowtails

I've been taking a lot of pictures this year of eastern tiger swallowtails.  I find it fascinating that the female can have both a light and a dark form.  

 A few days ago I was pleasantly surprised to find dozens of these winged beauties enjoying my sunflowers!

Sky Watch

These sky photos were taken in past years, as long ago as 2005, after thunderstorms.
We get some awesome sky views here in the "holler" but I haven't seen any as intense as it was on these days.

I wanted to post this on the Sky Watch blog, so decided to awaken my blog so that I could add it.    We actually have high speed internet now (yeah!) so perhaps I'll do some postings now and then!
