I have not been outside as much as I'd like lately, but have gone out with my camera a few times. On Tuesday, when I was taking photos for Bloomin' Tuesday and Wildlife Wednesday, I also saw some critters to photograph for Misty Dawn's Camera Critters. The link is in my sidebar.
(I want to thank Adrienne of Ohio for letting me know this is an ailanthus moth.)
I'm not sure what these are in the milkweed.
This rabbit was eating the lettuce that I left for them, too bitter for me, but hoping they'd eat it instead of my beans and such.
When it saw me, it went to the fence and munched on the grass I had just pulled. I felt like it was trying to act innocent. After taking a video and a bunch of photos, I went over to it and said I was not fooled, and chased it out, until next time.
I just missed getting a photo of the adult robin putting food into the young one's mouth. It looks big enough to me to be getting food on its own, but I'm not the parent.
I was pleased to see the monarch eating on the strawflowers.
Thursday, as I was taking photos for Flaunt your Flowers, I found more critters. I hadn't seen many butterflies on the lantana this year, but sure have enjoyed the blooms. I like that geranium and the purple verbena blooms with them, too. I was please with getting 3 different positions of the monarch.
The doves sure like to watch things from up high.
The squirrels sure are cute, but I still don't call them friends.
I'm thinking this is a skipper of some kind, but the wings look different than the ones I see most often.
I didn't leave as many captions as usual, because our grandson woke up from his nap, and we are going to take him to my parents' house. I really need to be doing shorter posts. I hope to reign myself in soon.
