“Oh where, tell me where was your buckeye cabin made?
Twas built among the merry boys who wield the plough and spade,
Where the log cabins stand, in the bonnie buckeye shade.

Oh what, tell me what is to be your cabin’s fate?
We’ll wheel it to the capital and place it there elate,
for a token and a sign of the bonnie Buckeye state.”

( song for the William Henry Harrison 1840 campaign)

    Those photos literally took my breath away – the magnificence of God’s creation and the gift of creativity that God has given you as you patiently wait for the right moment to take a photo! Thank you for sharing those beautiful photos on a rather cloudy and dull day here. Blessings.

    • Thank you Lynda—you are right as in I stood there snapping shot after shot as he kept opening and closing his wings and I could never get an “open” shot! Finally, and boy what a shot. The last two pics in the field are of the same species but of the underside of the wings—amazing!! I’m having to help my husband at his business this week so my time has not been my own!!!
      Hope it’s not too dreary you way tomorrow—:)
      all my love—Julie

    Although it is said that the devil is in the details, in this case I see nothing but beauty. Great photos.

    I really like the shot of the buckeye with the colorful autumn leaf. Isn’t fun seeing what nature provides for the camera’s eye–and ours? Thanks for the lovely pics, Julie! Hugs ~ Laura
