One of my very favorite birds!
First sighting of the year of these very odd creatures. Looks like a flying shrimp or lobster, flies like a hummingbird. This one was TINY! Less than an inch in total length.
Love the name! This one is enjoying a pink bee balm flower.
Eastern Kingbird during flight…
Japanese Beetle sitting atop a grassy stalk. These beetles are very prevalent on foliage this time of year here in the eastern states. They look cool, but are quite invasive and destructive to flowers and all manner of crops.
