Blowin’ in the Wind

Quote Irwin “We need to open our eyes, listen with our ears, forge forward and make every effort towards making the world a better place. It is time!” unquote

Come in and Sit Down

Lakeland Musings by Irwin

Today’s “word prompt” took me back in time to 1963 when Bob Dylan released “Blowin’ in the Wind.”

It is amazing how some of the lyrics fit right in with today’s world.

For instance, let’s look at lines one and two:

How many roads must a man walk down

Before you call him a man

When does a man become a man? When we graduate high school? College? When we marry? So many questions – who do we look to for answers?

And then there are lines thirteen and fourteen:

Yes and how many times can a man turn his head

And pretend that he just doesn’t see

With all that is going on in the world today, are we truly looking at what is happening, or are we merely looking past the facade of others and accepting life as it is and not for what it truly is and…

Macro Moments Challenge: Week 6 – White-letter Hairstreak

White-letter Hairstreak

af9ac3b08452417f076c8c611f27d858_0
White-letter Hairstreak – Satyrium w-album

A dark little butterfly that spends the majority of its life in the tree tops, feeding on honeydew, making it best observed through binoculars. The upper sides are a dark brown with a small orange spot in the bottom corner of the hindwing. The male has a small pale spot on the forewings made up of scent scales. The undersides are a lighter brown with a thin white line, the “hairstreak”, which gives this group of butterflies their name. On the hindwing this streak zigzags to form a letter ‘W’ (or ‘M’) from which this species gets its name. The outer edge of the hindwing has an orange border, but there is no orange on the forewings as on the similar black hairstreak and there are two short tails on the hindwings. Part of a group known as “lateral baskers”, they always rest with their wings closed. An excerpt from Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia. Click anywhere on the excerpt to read more really interesting data on this species.

Of all the Hairstreaks, the Green, and Purple are the 2 I have recorded the most. This one, the Brown-letter Hairstreak is a first for me, well pleased! It was snapped on flowers growing in a border just under the perimeter of the lower branches of a huge, mature Elm.

Daily Prompt: Look Up

Look up and search the sky, and there you’ll chance a Swallow, flying very high.

Look Up

Look up and search the sky, and there you’ll chance a Swallow, flying very high. This one took a pity, I’m sure it really did, for it landed on a cable not far from where I was hid. My camera at the ready I fired off a shot. I look up again to thank it, and have another go, but it had taken to  the sky again flying south, south, east. Perhaps back on its journey, back from whence it came, back to sunny Africa away from all the our summer rain!
