This Amberwing is so hard to get a good shot on since it is so small and hard to focus on. It is the smallest of dragonflies. This shot amazed me when I got home.
Eastern Kingbird fledges were flying and trying out a few bugs their parents enticed them with. It was fun to watch the hunting lessons even though the fledges were still spoiled from parental feedings.

Did I buy too many? They were 99 cents a pint and I like to freeze them for the following year. Being a very good fruit for you I enjoy using them in a variety of treats. Frozen, they add a nice touch to a smoothie, or just as a tasty snack. A neighbor was very severe diabetic and I would freeze some for her to eat like candy. It was hard to find sweets she could metabolize. I checked her blood twice a day and filled her insulin syringes for nine years. She had been a cook so I liked to share foods with her. I still grow beefsteak tomatoes in my garden always thinking of how she would marvel at their size. The biggest was always hers.
More daylilies bloom out in my garden. Only three petals are real where the other three are a type of leaf like your poinsettia's. You can see the margins on the edge of the petals of the yellow one.
Amazing as it sounds, I have posted 700 posts on this blog in a little over five years.
