Thanks for sharing your beautiful visitors.
So happy to share these little beauties. It was sunny and warmer yesterday so more butterflies were out than in the previous cooler days.
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.
Lovely. Looks and sounds like it is still summer there. 😃
Thanks Cathy. The last summery days are treat, intermingling with decidedly autumnal ones.
