Come On Out And Play

I love catching bass
From the movie, "The Codfather", the kiss scene.

Everyone in the picture is called Billy, including the human.

In Between Rains

Each flower or group of coneflowers seems to have their own charm.

Lily finally got sheared


Daisy has to smell everything and be on the hunt always.
Red Admiral, on a miniature Butterfly Bush I am trying this year.
These lilies have such a great scent, I have lots of them all around.

I call this a Coral Mushroom. It is edible, but not much flavor.

Eat from this one and you will grow tall Alice. I looked for fairies underneath.
Kiss me ,I'm a prince

Tiny Is Mighty

Even the smallest of finds like this Ruby-throated Hummingbird are fun to take notice of around me. I had to laugh when I saw this from far away. I may have to be called Eagle Eye.

A tiny frog, about the size of your thumb,  watches me . You can see it still has a tail so it has recently gone through a change.
 
 
 


This is a baby Red-winged Blackbird all wet from a recent rain. It seemed to want a dry place to rest.
