Meet Cuya, a sled dog from Denali National Park.
(Yes, I took this photo last August, but I needed a breather and besides, this photo is way more interesting than anything I did today.)
An unexpected visit to Sioux Falls meant that I had time to explore the Sertoma Butterfly House and Marine Cove, which I’d never been to before. As a kid, I thought butterflies were hard to catch…try photographing them! The Blue Morpho butterflies were my favorite, and of course those proved to be the most difficult to photograph because they closed their beautiful wings to a dull, brown camouflage every time they landed.
Yes, I’m well aware these are geese. But here in Minnesota, they play a game of Duck, Duck, Gray Duck (not Goose). Who knows why. Do you?
P.S. Mom, I finally got a picture of animals, though it happened to be in a retention pond next to a hazardous waste area.
