I thought I had more bug-licious pictures from this spring, but this is all I have been able to find upon review… As an aside, I was reminded recently of the number of bug parts allowed in human food before it can be labeled defective.
When I first went through my pictures of this Baltimore Oriole I thought he had a strange green cast to the side of his face. Upon closer inspection, I realized it was a worm.
Summer is finally here officially, bugs, heat, humidity and all. The forecast seems to imply spontaneous thunderstorms could happen at any time. Hot weather tends to make me feel like doing less, but the days are longer, so it’s kind of a guilt-trip situation if it’s still light and I feel like I haven’t done enough. Let’s see. This morning I went to the bank to sign some papers, stopped back home before I went to the dentist, then made four stops for food items, came home, took a nap on the futon after I put the groceries away, played piano while the budgies napped, cleaned the dining room, then fed the birds. Then made guacamole. Why do I feel as if I haven’t accomplished anything today?
And who knew cardinals ate bugs? Somehow they always struck me as being vegetarian. The guy below is enjoying one of those juicy little green guys.
Oh well, I’m off to bed early so I can get up before dawn and see if I can find more bugs, or birds that eat them.
