    I love the sound of birdsong in the garden but, with a very few exceptions, I’m not good at identifying the singers. My mother-in-law was a master of that skill. I tried to channel you yesterday, Susie, while stalking a yellow and black butterfly but I failed to get a photo.

      Identifying birds by sound is nearly impossible for me. This one was so distinctive it was easy to describe in a search. Hope that butterfly stuck around the next day and cooperated better, Kris.

    I’ve never seen a long-tailed skipper, perhaps it must be a more southern species… Lovely photos/videos, Susie. Butterflies and birdsong in the garden – can’t think of anything more pleasant.

      Yes Eliza, looks like long-tailed skipper has upper range of southern US. My photo didn’t capture the lovely blue. This year marks the first time I’ve seen this butterfly.
