It is hot, and sunny today at 90 degrees with high humidity. This is when the butterflies like to pollinate! I didn't stay out longer than I needed to as there is a heat advisory until 8:00 PM but might try to shoot the super moon scheduled for 9:47 PM! Probably that plan is off as we are having stormy weather this evening and most likely won't see the moon because of clouds

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!
