Dotted Horsemint

Dotted Horsemint… what a beautiful and unique flowering plant! I don’t recall ever seeing this at Chassahowitzka WMA.. so this was a true surprise to see this!

What is so neat about this plant is its unique flowering system. The stalk can produce multiple flower heads that creates an interesting photographic subject.

A day for the Green Lynx Spider

Escaping the computer… and glad I did! Mostly all the photos I took that day of Butterflies had an unexpected guest just below.  Remember, never forget to look more closely around the subject you are photographing… learn to take that extra time. I know that is hard to do when you have other people with you, or you feel there is a lack of time, but we all need to slow down and observe what nature shows us.
