The Skipper

I just love the Silverberry tree. It stands out in stark contrast to its neighbours with its lovely yellow fragrant flowers and silver leaves.

Expect to see more of these yellow blooms in future posts as I try to get the best possible photo of them.

Behind the high school they’ve allowed nature to take over. A lovely meadow has grown up here, leading up to the creek edge where the willows are. Along the edges of the meadow there are tawny skippers flitting about.

Occasionally they are willing to pose for you. Okay, that’s probably wishful thinking but this one did stick around long enough for me to get some photos of it from a couple of angles.

On my way home I spotted some white lilacs in someone’s front yard. I only shot a couple photos of it and now I wished I had spent a bit more time with them. Maybe another day.
