The last few days have been busier as far as birds and Butterflies are concerned.
We have finally seen some Hummingbirds at the feeder.
Of course I would like to get that perfect shot while the Hummer is hovering,but that is easier said than done.
I will settle for just a decent shot,like this.
We have had quite a few Butterflies around.
I think this is one of the Sulfurs,but would welcome correction.
I just like the way it looks against this yellow flower.
While shooting the butterflies,I noticed two bees on one flower.
I tried to get a quick shot and ended up with this.
I am not disappointed that they are both in flight.
We used to have two large apple trees,but are down to one.
Jake pruned it quite severely last year,so I didn't expect any apples,but look,we have some.
These are the Goodland variety and make a fantastic pie.
Earlier this spring Jake and I saw a Life bird,the Olive-sided Flycatcher.I got a couple of pictures,but nothing really good.
I looked out the back door the other day and look who was sitting on the top dry branch of our Willow.
This is the Olive-sided Flycatcher.
I got a number of really good pictures while it was sitting,but this is my favorite.This was definitely a lucky shot,but I'll take it.
Today has been a little cooler and that came along with high winds.The forecast is for hotter temperatures again by the end of the week.
Morden is getting ready to host the annual Corn and Apple Festival this coming weekend.
This means the town will be filled with visitors and action.
Thought for today:
In God's economy nothing that happens to you is ever wasted.
