How peaceful this park looks. Your butterfly image is amazing.

What a beautiful butterfly! I'm absorbing the sunny warm weather from your pics, Lowell! Although it is pretty warm here today for November - around 66˚F!

What a gorgeous park, Lowell! I love everything in your photos. This beautiful series reminds me of my long walks in nature parks, which I really enjoy. Thank you so much for sharing! I never tire of your photography.

That butterfly is my favourite.

Such a beautiful looking park, one that I would enjoy walking through. Your first photo has some very nice light highlighting the plant.
Enjoy your evening!

It is a lovely place Lowell! I always have trouble photographing Spanish moss for some reason, but you certainly did an excellent job with that fourth shot. The light is beautiful.

Hi Lowell, fine photos from the park. The fora of Florida is very different than around here. Happy to see what grows there. BTW, yes, I know a little about the WD 45 tractor. Allis Chalmers built it from 1952-1957. It has a four cylinder motor that generates about 30 hp drawbar and 40 hp on the belt. My Iowa friend had one, and he was was not happy with the soft metal of the crankshaft. He rebuilt it after it started to knock, and then a few years later the motor blew up shattering the block. He bought a new John Deere tractor, and has never looked back

I really Like the fluffy grasses. And those other tall grasses have been appearing more and more by the side of the roads here in Ontario.... they seem to be taking over the wetlands and squeezing the bulrushes out. Very pretty but an invasive species.

Shalom Park is lovely. I like that tree draped in moss and I love the butterfly!
(To answer your question re: paragliding, would I go up in one of those things. Not on your life!...or mine!)

Beautiful plants, and I love the butterfly, too. Sitting on a rosemary plant, I think.

What a very lovely series of images Lowell and you captured a butterfly too 😊 Love the pink fluffy feathery plants!

In answer to your question, yes, he actually wore that pumpkin suit outside in public! And what you didn't see was the bright orange knitted hat that was the crowning "piece de resistance" that finished the outfit off!
It's a copy of the suit that Tom Hanks wore in a Hallowe'en skit in SNL.

It is so lovely and peaceful....wonderful butterfly ... and the first photo evokes the awe I still feel when I see 'houseplants' growing lushly outdoors. In the winter! Can you tell I'm just about ready to fly South?

Sharon Anck said...

Wow, what a series of gorgeous photos. They are all wonderful but, that butterfly is spectacular and so colorful. I feel like I've had a walk in the park without leaving my desk.

Judy said...

Beautiful place and I see some plants there that also grow here.

BTW, I would choose Spot because he was friendly and came over to the fence to visit with me. The other ones just ignored me and looked like they wished I would go away. I have never done that ride into the canyon but my husband spent one summer in his youth leading tourists down the trail on mules. He said it isn't really dangerous as long as everyone follows the rules.

The flora of Florida looks like tropical with interesting plants. I’m familiar with the pampas grass. The butterfly is exotically beautiful.
