Looking For Breakfast!

public.jpeg

We took a drive up to Grand Lake St. Marys on Tuesday. We didn’t see much, but we did capture photos of a large number of Great Blue Herons. This one was my favorite.

We made a video too. I added some photos from around the county. Enjoy!!

Two Butterflies and a Wasp

public.jpeg

I could not have planned for this shot. Two butterflies, and a wasp, one flower .. how cool is that.

The yellow butterfly is a Clouded Sulphur. I will post an update once I confirm the second butterfly. I don’t have much to add about the wasp. He was not invited, but came to the party anyway.

A Buckeye

This is a Common Buckeye. They stand out because of the cool circles on their wings.

So, they don’t have a long lifespan. In fact, check this out:

Think about that .. only an adult for 6 to 20 days. Wow.

I took this photo on the stony bank of the Stillwater River. They come to this spot fo the water. Even the butterflies need a drink on a warm day.

Your Tail Is So Blue:)

This is a female Eastern Bluebird. I don’t get photos of the females often, but I saw this one near the road near the entrance to Garbry Big Woods Sanctuary. The bright blue tail feathers are a giveaway. She looks like an older bird. Beautiful sight.

Finally … The Waxwing

public.jpeg

I have been watching for a Cedar Waxwing to show up for the entire summer. As they normally do, there was more than one, and I captured this photo of three of them.

This is about the same place along the Miami River where I Iast saw a few of them a year ago. I was surprised it took so long. They are a very cool looking bird.
