Kisatchie Splendors

Red-banded Hairstreak (Calycopis cecrops) on Large Partridge Pea (Chamaecrista fasciculata)

I want to do a book of the splendors of the Kisatchie National Forest. If you have never been there, come for a hike with me some day.

Once in awhile I get lucky!

Wandering Glider (Pantala flavescens)

These beauties almost never perch. Catching them on the fly takes patience and persistence, at least for me. I got one shot in focus from among many whilst standing at a drainage ditch at the intersection of soybean fields, no shade in sight, sweat running into my eyes and down my spine. I suppose that is why I am inordinately proud!
