OK here is a few of lots of pictures that mum has taken recently. You can click on the pictures to biggify them to see the details. Enjoy!
If you are in the US, enjoy our holiday weekend. Mum and I are taking a short break for the holliday.
Here he is perching on one of the daylillies.
Then he flew over to the the butterfly bush to gets some nectar to eat.
He turned all the way over and is doing a full Monty!
One last picture of butterfly number one.
Bumble bee is cleared for landing on the cone flower.
The hummer coming in for a landing to get some yummy eats from the trumpet vine. The hummer is just to the left and above of the central flower cluster.
Stopping to eat.
While the hummer flew away he came back and actually sat still on the flower for a brief moment.
Then off he goes again.
Then he flew over to get a big long drink from the hummer feeder.
This is a young woodpecker coming to visit the suet cake. Mum says we have lots of woodpeckers and she has been going through two suet cakes a month, even in the summer.
Mum isn't sure exactly what this is that is feeding on the butterfly bush. Looks too big to be a bee but it isn't a hummer either.
This is a different butterfly from the first. The coloring is different and you can see that a chunk of wing is missing.
If anyone knows exactly what kind of butterflies these are mum would like to know. Also, none of these picutres have been cropped or changed in any way. Some of them might be better if they were cropped, but giving you the full view.
