For the past two weeks,I have been feeding the cat and pond fish across the lane from my home while the neighbors are away.
I always enjoy photographing in Mona's garden and on this particular day, I saw one of my favorite visitors...
A Sphinx Moth, and. or Hummingbird Moth.
They are truly such lovely, delicate creatures~
I think either this autumn, or next spring, I must invest in a Butterfly Bush...
for then I might get such lovely visitors my way~
Below is a Fiery Skipper center and another species of Skippers along side~
* Note...there are so many species of Skippers, and I am just not certain what these are.
Before Mona left on her vacation journey, she called me on the phone one afternoon to say that I just might be interested in the 3 frogs she had just seen by her pond.
When I got there, this is what I saw...3 American Bullfrogs, all piled on top of one another~
One of the smallest butterflies seen here is the Pearl Crescent taking in the nourishment of a purple Cone Flower~
Below is a gorgeous Spot-winged Glider Dragonfly.
I had never seen one of these before, and it was an amazing species, taken right across the lane from my home the other day~
Below are Knock-Out-Roses taken at my next door neighbor Sue's garden. I have to take so many of my summer images elsewhere, for the vast part of my 2 acres is shade trees~
I enjoy so much watching butterflies, the way they glide from flower to flower.
Their beauty is amazing, such gifts every one of them.
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail below, such elegant beauty~
