I wander around the wilderness behind the house every day, almost. I take a lot of photos of mushrooms, wildflowers, insects, leaves and anything else in nature, especially unusual or seldom noticed things. The wilderness is located in the northeast corner of Alabama. It's on the Cumberland Plateau, which is toward the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains.

Wild Azaleas, a Butterfly and Petey the Wonder Dog.
I went walking today, back to where the honeysuckles (wild azaleas) are blooming. As usual, I found a few things to photograph in the wilderness other than what I went looking for. Here are the photos.
A very small yellow flower that was growing in the path.
I don't know what these are, but they are on a bush. I had to stand on my head to get this shot.
Not really, I held the camera below the blooms and took the shot blind.
I followed this butterfly for quite a distance before he sat still long enough for me to get these shots.
These are growing from a bunch of moss. The stems are about four or five inches long.
This is Petey the Wonder Dog's grave. I transplanted some Narcissus plants here last spring. They haven't bloomed and may not this year. They will. I walk by here when I walk to the pond.
When I got back home, I spotted this moth on a wildflower (Daisy Fleabane) in the yard.
