Birds Ultimate Challange

ExclusiveBirds Ultimate Challange

Many times each year I take time to appreciate wild life and nature, These creatures who fly, walk, slither and live along side us humans. Several things stand our as I write this, one being how amazing are the birds survival capabilities out doors in the cold, wind, and snow, I took a few hours today to brave the near 0 temps to go out and take a few photos of birds being birds. 

The Common Buckeye

A common buckeye caterpillar shown on a host plant. This species is  resident across the southern United States, much of Mexico and as far north as southern Canada.  When in the butterfly state, it regularly expands its range each year  northward to temporarily colonize much of the U.S., reaching Canada. Starting in late summer and continuing through fall, huge numbers of adults migrate southward, where the adults overwinter.
