Monarch Butterflies have not been many, but I’ve had at least one visiting my yard every day I’m around to witness it. Glad they like the Tall Ironweed below.
American Goldfinches have been taking advantage of seed abundance everywhere.
I don’t know who will care for the Wild Senna seed pods but this is what the plant has produced below. The flowers are all gone.
At least one Black-Capped Chickadee is on hand to remind me to keep the sunflower seed feeder full.
The Northern Cardinals are in various stages of molt.
I was sitting outside on my front porch waking up from an afternoon nap after the past Sunday’s outing to Big Marsh and a beautiful female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird zoomed in to check out my front wildflower garden. Of course I didn’t have the camera with me. But I hung a feeder on the front porch. I live in hope for a future photo opportunity.
I hope that you get your humming bird opportunity. Excellent pictures of your other visitors.
Thanks so very much. I’m feeling lucky now. 🙂
A lot of my birds are molting too. I see you get variety of birds in your garden, that’s good! Nice shots! 🙂
Thanks, H.J. My indoor crowd is also molting. Feathers R Us…
Great photos of the Monarchs. I’ve never seen Cardinals molting quite like that. Have you ever found Caterpillars on your Wild Senna?
I was really surprised by the cardinal molt too. I am not aware of caterpillars on the Wild Senna but now I will be looking and I’ll let you know!
