abstract butterfly

alum creek

I found myself on a freeway in Ohio today. I stopped by Alum Creek State Park for a very quick walk. I walked on walking trails by the ranger station. I saw goldenrod, blooming thistles, susans, sunflowers, asters, a great blue heron,
a Carolina chickadee, rain, a startled vulture, a pond and lovely trees.

Here's a viceroy butterfly I saw:

I would enjoy seeing it again, with more time for a proper visit.
