I'm a little uncertain about the orange butterfly, I think it is either a Monarch or a Viceroy. Monarch seems more likely given my location.
I believe the black butterfly is a Black Swallowtail.
Planted to attract hummingbirds, the flower-bed is doing good work.
Since the flowers started to bloom we have been waiting for a visit from humingbirds, butterflys and moths.
We were visited by a Clearwing Hummingbird Moth at the end of July 2023. Here is a selection of pictures of the vistor.
A peek at birds nesting in our front flower-bed and a flowering bush.
We are trying to time the best blooms for our Crabapple Tree, and we are getting close.
Here are some pictures of the trees using a Nikon 70-300mm lens.
A touch of seasonal colors to balance out my spring B&W photos.
