We still have a lot of summer yet to come but it makes a big difference when the heat is somewhat delayed.
Unfortunately the bird baths are often dirty in shots I take because I'll notice they need cleaning whileI take the shots.
I have a lot of house finches at the bird baths but the colorful males usually fly off before I shoot them and I get more shots of the muted feathered females (above) instead.
I think I neglected to I.D. the first bird that began this post as a bluejay; the second was a ladybug on a mimosa tree leaf. I don't know what made the hole in the tree in the third shot.
