I think the American Robin looks great all fluffed out in the bath although the lighting wasn't very good and the shot is poor.
The mockingbird was fussing me out.
Then she went back to her bath.
It was nice to see a butterfly for a change.
I haven't seen many butterflies this summer.
This one hung out on my deck for a long photo shoot and then flew up to a plant growing in my roof gutter.
I'm starting to see trees begin to change colors which is very early for central NC where I live.
The tree belonging to the stump below was lying across a garden path after a storm. The tree was recently removed but the stump remains.
I wonder if the Japanese Maple below will ever emerge from the umbrella of the elephant ears.
Usually by this time of the summer many flowers are going to seed but this year there are still plenty of fresh flowers.
