Photo of the Day - 5/6/2014

May 06, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I decided to walk around Lake Calhoun again yesterday to see if I could get more shots of assorted birds.  Besides, it was absolutely gorgeous out.  Anyway, there were still flocks of coots and lots of horned grebes there, but all away from shore.  So, birdwise it was kind of a bust.  However, I did see my first butterfly of the year; a white one of unknown type.

In honor of that, today's photo is an aged Mourning Cloak taken at Lake Harriet many years ago (if it was younger, the white outer edge would be bright yellow).  This was probably my first good butterfly image, even if it is a bit centered.
