There are hundreds of bees (not sure what kind of bee the one below is) that are busy on my porcelain vine (Ampelopsis brevipenduculata).
The American Robin was shaking off the water so hard that it looked like she had hair covering her eyes.
The blackberry vines are beginning to form berries. They are growing through the porcelain vine so most of the visible leaves are from the porcelain vine.
There are hundreds of bumblebees mixed in with the smaller bees.
The bumblebees flit around amongst the different flowers.
I have a lot of brown thrashers in my yard.
The mourning dove pair were sharing a bird bath.
The juvenile cardinal and american robin were sure about sharing.
The carolina wren finally stayed still long enough for a photo.
There are a bunch of juvenile cardinals this year.
There were eight or so on my deck at the same time.
I like how soft their feathers look after a bath.
I like the dusky beaks on the juvenile females.
I finally managed to get some shots when the bird baths were relatively clean.
I love the way cardinals tilt their heads.
What a great series of photos! I can't wait until my coneflowers are bloomed.
Lots of activity in your yard Carver! Terrific bee shots, and I always enjoy seeing the birds in the bath!
I think all the birds in your neighborhood must love your birdbath. I just love all the bath shots. Wonderful collection of photos, Carver.
So much life and promise and energy in these pictures!
Carver thanks so much for telling me how you set up your yard and baths...I wish I had more property and could have it more natural like you do. I enjoy the birds bathing so much, I went and got a bigger bird bath!
I love seeing all the pollinators in your yard... Wow.... This made me smile..... Michelle

Those are great! I love to see the birds enjoying their bathing, and your other photos were very enjoyable.
