Bees & Blooms & Birds & Butterflies & Bunnies

This week has provided a diverse bounty of photographic subjects.  I hope you find something thats strikes your fancy.
Three bumblebees jostle for a spot on the flower of a thistle plant...



The wild daylillies are in full bloom along country roads...


This Gray Catbird is one of several that visits my yard regularly...



Hummingbirds often steal the threads from spider webs to build their nests.  Here, if you look closely, you can see remnants of spider silk clinging to the beak and tail feathers of a Ruby-throated Hummingbird...

Having water available for the birds that visit your yard is just as important as having feed.  Here a Goldfinch drinks while it's companion waits for its turn...



This male Indigo Bunting sings his morning song...


A young European Starling begs for breakfast from a parent...



This Belted Kingfisher is perched at the top of a tree watching for food in the creek below...


 
Butterflies are beginning to appear in large numbers at this time of year.  This one is a Cabbage Worm Butterfly...




Here is a pretty water flower bloom taken at Lillypons Water Gardens...


I will close this post with a photo of a Cottontail Rabbit in my neighbors yard enjoying  the tender grass...
