Wild Life II

More butterflies and bugs.

Monarch on Joe Pye Weed.  There are so many butterflies I can’t identify in the garden.  I did see a swallowtail in the fennel this afternoon.

I think these are two pairs of mating boxelder bugs. It was hard to get the camera to focus on the right thing.

And here are the boxelder babies…

It is a little hard to see the mourning dove on the bird bath.  We had so many birds this year at our two bird baths.  The most frequent are robins, goldfinches, sparrows, cardinals, and possibly a pair or pine grosbeaks or maybe they were purple finches….
