Chasing Butterflies

Posted in Horses, Nature, Photography by leahyetter on May 22, 2012

We have a crew coming out for a branding soon so Patrick is getting rides in on the horses after their long winter of staying in the corral and pigging out on yummy hay. They need the exercise and he likes to get them a little tired out before he puts shoes on them. Horses can be a little ornery when told what to do after months of doing what they want.

After unsaddling a couple horses the other evening, I walked out of the tack room and was swarmed by butterflies and moths. It was unreal, they must have hatched at the very moment I was unsaddling.

So I put the tired horses back in the corral and ran around for an hour with my camera.

They were exploring every bush and every flower and they wouldn’t stay still long enough to be photographed. But I like these two, hope you do too!

Georgia Spring Beauty

Posted in Georgia, Nature by leahyetter on May 18, 2010

I made it back home yesterday evening. It was a great week of visiting family and friends. I had several shoots while there, thank you to Mercer and Ginger and Avery! Here are some shots of springtime in Georgia.

Happy Butterfly

Last year, I found some old seed packets of my mothers that dated back to the seventies. Miraculously I lucked out with one sunflower.

Miracle Sunflower I

Me and a tiny honey bee just loved this flower. He’s burrowed in the seeds of the flower.

Miracle Sunflower II

This little guy would visit me often. He deserved a good portrait.

Smiling Dragonfly

It rained a good bit here in Wheatland last week. When I drove into the ranch, the meadows were green and the trees were blooming. I’ll have local updates soon.  xo
