I'm always surprised at how many lovely things you discover along the roadside. Maybe it's Ontario or maybe I just haven't looked hard enough!

Re your comment on flutterbys...perhaps what you get are our butterflies who travel from Florida to Ontario ... that could be a rough trip, leaving them all tattered!

Whatever those little bugs are they look like they are performing a routine that has been choregraphed by some famous choregrapher!

Love the damselflies. We have had tons of dragonflies lately, but they are too fast for me to get a picture!
