Hope all is going well with you and yours this fall. I haven’t been able to be out in the back much until now and imagine my surprise when this pair of mating Marine Blues stayed still long enough for me to drag the camera out . Marty wanted to tear out the pincushion plants a few weeks ago, but I asked him to hold on as they are close to some milkweed and we may yet have some Monarch chryalids (sp?). Anyways, I thought you might like to see that our Marine Blues are alive and well! I know they’re common, but I enjoy them nontheless.

Your image of Marine Blues mating is quite lovely. Thanks for taking the time to drag out the camera. Though they are common, they are quite cheerful flitting around the garden.
Your correction is duly noted. Drag out the camera rather than drag the camera out. My mother will be mortified to find I made such a horrid mistake. . .
