Spring Supper ...


“It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.”

Tiger Wings ...


“Just as the bird sings and the butterfly soars, because it is his natural characteristic, so the artist works.”
                ~ Alma Gluck
                          ~ 1884-1938
Though this papillon has orange and black coloring, this is not a tiger, but an Eastern Comma Butterfly.

This beauty alights on an early June afternoon along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) at Lehigh Gap.

In the shadow of the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, the Lehigh Gap in Slatington, Pennsylvania, is a crossroads where the Lehigh Gap Nature Center’s trails connect two historic trails – the Appalachian Trail and the Delaware and the D&L Trail.

The Appalachian Trail, a foot path, follows the ridge on both sides of the Lehigh Gap, running 1,245 miles south to Georgia and 930 miles north to Maine. Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.
