The sunny Saturday took us from the largest to the smallest, with a special visitor that is passing through.
The Red-shouldered hawk made a number of passes across the pond. Even grabbing some prey at the water's edge at one point. This fuzzy image was the best I could do.
I'm thinking Maw and Paw Yellow-crowned Night Heron, but don't ask me to distinguish which is which!
My morning glories always seem to come on with cooler weather.
Gulf Fritillary butterfly.
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly.
How about Apple Green Skimmer. (that's my name for him)
Here is our irregular visitor. We see the Yellow Warbler about once a year in the yard, right about now, which is the beginning of migration season.
'Super-sonic Ruby-throated' gave me some poses today.
And a great flash!
And we close with a honey bee in the fluorescent orange-red zinnia.
