Pfiltered Photos

The sunflowers know that summer is fading. Back in early June they stood proud during the morning, and turned their faces away from the evening sun as if they were embarrassed.
Now they look as if they lost their best friends. The bees and butterflies won't give them the time of day. No wonder they look sad. The Zinnias on the other hand are still standing proud.
This evening when I went down to pour a scoop of corn under the apple tree for the deer, I saw something out of the corner of my eye, dart toward the underbrush.
Just before it made cover, I realized it was a tiny spotted fawn not much bigger than a house cat.
I dumped the corn and turned toward the house bumping the corn can on my thigh to knock out any remnants of corn.
When I got back to the garden, I saw an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly dancing among the Old Maids.
I pulled my phone from my pocket and inched my way up to the flower bed. The Swallowtail flitted to another flower.
I crept even more slowly and managed to quickly get a photo before it found another flower. The photo was a little blurry, which made it a perfect candidate for my Photoshop magic filter.
Jilda said that you all were probably tired of my Pfiltered Photos, but I couldn't resist on this one.
I hope you all have a great Friday and an even better weekend.
Let's all do something remarkable.


  1. I love the pics you share..and I enjoy the photo shop effects. I did chuckle a bit picturing you "skulking" around the backyard sneaking up on innocent butterflies!

    1. I skulk around a good bit. Jilda probably needs to capture a photo of that:)

  2. Tell Jilda that bloggers would rather have Pfiltered Photos than No photos any day of the week- xo Diana

  3. Butterflies are always lovely to see!!! Take care

  4. Awesome photo! Thanks for sharing it.

  5. We're never tired of them! Keep the wonderful photos coming.

  6. Well, if that butterfly isn't remarkable enough, I don't know what would be. Have a great weekend.

  7. This would be a nice picture to use as a background paper for digital scrapbooking :-)

    1. Hey Nadia, I can't get to your blog to follow you back. Thanks for your kind words.

  9. We are never tired of your artistic pictures, Rick. I really love this one.
    No end of summer here... we are having a heat wave!

  10. I'm not tired of them. I wish I'd seen the fawn.


  11. It's a great shot!
    I like it and more importantly you enjoyed creating this picture.
    The thing about blogging is that you should be able to enjoy it, relating the things that relate to you and your life and things you like and dislike.

  12. I love butterflies... oh how I wish I could capture a picture of the very few I see... I keep trying :)
