I am exploring places in my backyard this year. I have lived in many places, and it always surprises me how little I know about what is close by. Working at home, has freed time for a daily walk, the gym was closed for months, and is very limited now that it is opened, all of this has resulted in walking a lot. Most mornings I walk the same trail, about two miles round trip in a swamp along the Potomac River. I am noticing the subtle changes in season. Changes in the colors, different birds, bugs and flowers. I try to listen, I try to be aware of what is happening around me. It is so easy to get into our bubble, and not see, hear or smell what is around us. I am practicing awareness.
Can anyone identify the butterfly?
