Spent a couple of hours the other day with family at the lovely Jenkins Arboretum. While it wasn’t altogether the best time of the summer for their flowers, I managed to find a few to shoot.
What the place was lacking in flowers, though, it made up for in critters.
This guy seemed particularly curious about me. I know that’s quite a lot to say for a moth, but I choose to believe he found the big camera thingy in his face interesting. I know, I know, it just looks like it’s looking right at the camera because the antennae are bent just right. But hey, check out that proboscis! Thanks Greg for helping me ID this one with at least relative confidence.
Ran into a wedding photographer scouting for an engagement shoot the next day. The place was pretty dry (area hasn’t had rain for 71 days, but it’s supposed to rain in the next day or two), but there are still some very nice views.
The place is well worth a visit if you’re in the Main Line area – very manageable size and a good deal of variety all summer long. More information on the arboretum here. The rest of this set is here.
