Shopping, Butterflies

Carmi's Thematic Photographic 347 is Grocery store finds. I sometimes take pictures in the store when I want to check something out, like these little LED lightbulbs.

Pretty expensive...maybe these are the ones we need?

So I ended up just taking pictures and going back home for further research. Meanwhile, Theda waited outside.

It's still peak butterfly season. This is my contribution to Michelle's Nature Notes (#326).


Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

LED's are expensive, but long-lived. I go for compact fluorescents myself.

Your sweet Theda is waiting patiently in the shade. Love the pretty butterflies! Have a happy week!

Gorgeous butterflies!

At first I was thinking you might have caught a butterfly in a grocery store! Lovely captures. I do that same thing of taking photos of stuff sometimes that I might want or that I know someone else is looking for. I have sent a good many photos especially to my daughter that loves to cook!

Theda is such a good girl!

Perfect place for a good dog to wait patiently.
Were the bulbs the right ones, I wonder?

I love the butterflies.

Theda is so obedient and patient to wait outside. Lovely butterflies and flowers.

The swallowtail is lovely. Great that Theda will wait for you....I'd have to really secure Polly!

I love Theda..... Wow..that is expensive and we have lots of odd lights here that we buy for. I am so glad you have butterflies and I hope I get these two monarchs on their way tomorrow when the fall cold air leaves...Michelle

Theda knows the best place to be. Butterflies have been scare here till just this week - no swallowtails though.

She is such a sweet dog: Looks so happy waiting for you to return. Doubtless she'd agree the bulbs are scandalously expensive: specialty lights are always ridiculously priced.

I need your guidance re. capturing butterflies. You have the magic touch!
