Rain began Tuesday evening, and finally quit last night (Friday), though Thursday was mostly precipitation free. The huge stationary front dropped about 6 inches on us, and even more in western Arkansas. Consequently, our lakes have risen steadily—Norfork Lake rose over 10 feet in 3 days, and the White River is full with inflow from Bull Shoals Lake, Crooked Creek, and the Buffalo River, and has backed into the Norfork River, putting a damper on wade fishing.
Today has been mostly sunny, and provided an opportunity to take photos of butterflies around our place. Here are some pictures (there were two other species, but they flitted and fluttered so fast as to prevent a camera shot).
