I am always inspired by nature and the beauty around us. We recently moved into an apartment (while waiting to build) and I have been missing many of the birds that I used to see in our backyard. But I have had to opportunity to see lots of insects and a bird or two in the surrounding fields. Here are a few examples of insects that I haven’t taken photos of previously.
My husband said that he always called these insects June bugs.
This little butterfly is no larger than 1.5 inches.
I was intrigued by this moth and looked up the ID. It’s called an Imperial moth and it’s unusual to see because the birds usually get to the caterpillars before they have a chance to become adults.
I am learning that even though we don’t have our own yard right now, there is beauty and inspiration all around. If you would like to join these challenges – you can find the info here – https://pilotfishblog.com/2021/08/07/lens-artists-photo-challenge-160-your-inspiration/

So true. There is beauty everywhere. Enjoyed your pics. 😊
Well said and shown Nora – there’s always something there to inspire us if we are open to it. That orange moth is quite a specimen!
Inspired shots here. I love the photo of the butterfly: a spot of white in a sea of green. The imperial moth is pretty impressive
Wow. great captures Nora.
Lovely post and images, Nora. I love the imperial moth. I’ve never seen one before! Thanks for inspiring all of us!
Lovely pictures from your bug hunt Nora. But what a fantastic project you have lined up in building your own home. This is so exciting and judging from the front elevation, it will be such a lovely home too. I’d love to do that 🙂
Thanks Paul – we decided it was time to downsize and also move closer to our grandkids. Here in the U.S. it’s gotten expensive especially lumber – so hopefully we can move forward soon
Lovely and inspiring, Nora. The little Imperial moth is very special!
It took 5 years to build our little home because of crummy contractors. I hope yours goes much much better. Having photography at your hand will help and the photos are beautiful 🙂
So beautiful photos! Specially the imperial moth really excellent!Thank you for sharing ☺️😊🌷
