Miscellaneous pictures of wildlife, flowers, and bugs...

Sand Hill cranes at sunset. This picture looks better in a larger size.

Butterfly on a sweet pea vine...

...then it flies away. I kind of like this picture.

Another picture that really looks better in a larger size.

An unusual annual vine called a corkscrew vine. It doesn't start blooming until late Aug or Sep, but then blooms prolifically until freeze with large hanging clusters of white and purple corkscrew flowers. Very fragrant also.
