Austin, TX (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Two days ago I found this Red Admiral near death on the hot sidewalk outside my office building. I got near enough to touch it and it did not move. I knew it was in trouble, so I scooped him up and took him home with me. He was still alive when we arrived, sitting on the back seat. I took him to our garden and released him. He crawled off into some thick leaves and disappeared. I did not know if he made it until yesterday when I got home. There he was perched on the Coneflower!

Beautiful story! Reminds me of this quote...

“Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and it's beauty.” ― Albert Einstein

About lkw51


My name is Larry and I live in Austin, Texas. I got the bug for photography late in life (2008) and became a member of this awesome site the same year. I have learned so much from all the talented and creative photographers here and you all serve as my inspiration on a daily basis. I would also like to welcome my son to WunderPhotos (ajwilson)and I look forward to learning a few things from him!
