PhotoHunt: Walking


The PhotoHunt theme this week is "Walking"




Queen Butterfly caterpillars Walking on my dill. Okay, yeah, and eating it, too. I never did get a chance to actually use any of the dill I planted before it bloomed, so at least someone should enjoy it! Please click on the images to get the best look.

This is what a Queen butterfly looks like (not my photo - I lost my photos of the Queen in the last great computer crash. Back up your drives, people!):

Happy Weekend, All!
