Old Barn


This is one of my favorite barns to photograph.  After work on Friday, I took to the road.  I returned to a scene the produces many great photographs.

I found this barn one time after photographing something for a friend.  I had been looking for a barn such as this and it appeared from nowhere (sort of).  This is all the reason to take the long road home and hit the county roads.  This is a place I will return to many times in the future.

I did not make it earlier this year as planed.  It would have been a good year for it.  The last few years, the barn had corn planted around it.  This year it looks like they planted beans.  I made it after the harvest as you can tell.  Barns like this are great.

Black Swallowtail Larva

091010_002_n_p_ss_eFall color is upon us.  This weekend I should be out with the camera. 

There are signs of the end of summer still even though the tem-peratures are getting colder.  Saturday in the backyard was this find.  We have a Black Swallowtail Larva.  Maybe next Spring after this one winters over I will post an image of the butterfly this one produces.  There were two out when I saw them earlier in the day.  Later in the day I was able to photograph and only saw this one.  It was the larger one.  Today I saw one, and it seemed to be smaller than this one.  Maybe it was the other one.

I looked for the chrysalis of the other one seen Saturday, but did not find it.  I will gently look for it in the next few days.
