Carmi's Thematic Photographic 354 is Down on the ground. This is a Common Checkered-Skipper, Pyrgus communis. I don't think I've ever seen one before.
This is my contribution to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #86. I don't think this little tree meant to flower in November, but it's pretty nonetheless.
Another shot of the flowers, and I'm also contributing to Michelle's Nature Notes (#337).
