Poor little one didn't learn to fly when jumping from the nest. Hopefully, it got off the ground before something hungry came along.

I have posted pictures before of Karner Blue Butterflies that inhabit my oak savanna project but here goes again! lol.

These little postage stamped sized butterflies are Federally endangered , have a very limited range currently with Wisconsin hosting the largest population that still exists. When the Feds listed the Karners as endangered, mid 90's (Dec. 1992) , Wisconsin's DNR stepped up and made rules for allowing incidental take permits for ROW's, commercial building projects etc. The DNR also set up a citizen science monitoring project that helps keep track of the Karner populations up and downs. While I do not agree with a lot of decisions that Wi DNR makes, they worked this one out well with the cooperation of US Fish and Wildlife, Partners for Wildlife , public lands and private landowners such as myself. Due to this cooperation, habitat work has been performed at a high level and rate which benefits All wildlife. Pollinators, deer and turkey populations have all benefited.

The picture of the Karner with the darker upper wings with orange spots is the female of the species, while the picture of the Karner with the more lighter blue upper wings with no orange spots is the male. These butterflies do not migrate, have two flights a season and rely on Wild Lupine as the only known host plant for the larva. The fact they do not migrate and have a very limited range is one of the reasons that they are endangered along with loss of suitable habitat and lack of wild lupine.

Sorry about the terrible picture, but this little piebald and its mom were about 70 yards away at the very end of the backyard and my phone is not the greatest for taking long distance shots.

This is the third piebald I've seen in the yard in the past few years.

It's been about 7 to 8 degrees cooler at the coast than inland for the day time highs. Not much biting, other than catchin a buzz.

Well.....somebody has to 'supervise'.......right?

My Wife hates it when I clean my pistols on the kitchen table, but I don't always feel like walking down to my shop and unless they need a really deep/thorough cleaning.....I can do it right in the house.

Since that 1911 is all stainless.....you 'could' just put in the dishwasher (remove those grips). ;)

Here's the 500+ year old pub that my mum used to frequent in the early 1950s before she met my dad. She left college and started working on a farm in Stalisfield Green, Kent as a herdswoman.

Bad day for the hay field and round bailer.

I was down at my land yesterday and on the way back snapped these pictures.
It looked like the farmer was able to save the Farmall but obviously the bailer was a total loss. Maybe 2 to 2 1/2 acres burned. With the drought and high fire danger it could have been a lot worse.
