Subtle Awakening

Sunrise, Seascape, Lake Michigan, Kewaunee, WI, Lighthouse, BeachThe Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier stand ready to greet the sun as it rises above the Lake Michigan horizon.

I love the way the light dances on the beach with the gentle rhythm of the calm, early morning waves.  The clouds above add another layer of flavorful light.

Along Milwaukee’s river walk, there are a number of downtown locations where a beautiful scene can be captured.

Owl Butterfly

Butterfly, Owl Butterfly, Big Butterfly,
I found this unique, very large butterfly on a recent visit to the Puelicher Butterfly Vivarium in the Milwaukee Public Museum.  There were a variety of butterflies, but this one intrigued me the most because of it’s size.

According to Wikipedia

An owl butterfly is a butterfly, in the genus Caligo, known for their huge eyespots, which resemble owls’ eyes. They are found in the rainforests and secondary forests of Mexico, Central, and South America.

Owl butterflies are very large, 65–200 mm (2.6–7.9 in), and fly only a few meters at a time, so avian predators have little difficulty in following them to their settling place. However, the butterflies preferentially fly in dusk, when few avian predators are around. The Latin name may possibly refer to their active periods. Caligo means darkness.

Golden Shrimp Plant

Golden Shrimp Plant, Flower, Yellow, Macro, Tropical Plant
This is the unique bloom of the tropical plant known as the Golden Shrimp Plant.  I was able to snap this image at a botanical garden.  This flower blooms the appealing yellow color and then bursts forth with slender white petals.  Very cool.

Tree Dwellers

Mushrooms, Fungi, Fungus, Tree, White Birch, Birch
It was a banner year for mushrooms in northeast Wisconsin.  An abundance of rainfall seemed to keep them sprouting up to, and even beyond, the first frosts.

I thought it was unusual to see so many mushrooms growing on a tree trunk. These healthy specimens were found in the woods of northeast Wisconsin.

Queen Monoplane

Aviation, Antique, Airplane, Monoplane, EAA, E.A.A., Museum
They don’t make them like this anymore.  This is the Queen Monoplane – a part of early aviation history.  As you can see by it’s markings, it was used to deliver mail.  It is part of the historic aviation displays at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

The E.A.A. museum is a very cool place to learn about the history of aviation.  You’ll find historic aircraft and information from the Wright Brother’s flyer to spacecraft.  They have a great Warbirds exhibit.

Heaven Above

Lighthouse, Kewaunee, Wisconsin, Lake Michigan, Clouds, Sky
The sky was glorious the morning I captured this image. It was shortly after sunrise and the low angle of the sun was only lighting up certain areas of the sky.

This is the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

Gladiolus Lethargy

Gladiolus, Flowers, Red, Blooming
These gladiolus seemed to lack the energy and strength to stand up straight. To be fair, it wasn’t their fault. They were planted late, in mid summer, and didn’t begin to bloom until early fall. Even though they are far from perfect specimens, the vibrant red and uncharacteristic, nonchalant posture appeal to me.
