The weather has been lovely here , sunny not to humid more heat then humidity I can handle that better and cool summer breezes . This time of the season lots of activity well ok maybe not much from Miggs as you see here lol but in the rest of the yard and gardens there is as all prepare for migration .
The ever elusive hummer this season lol ! They are feasting up a storm now .
As are all the butterfly's and moth creatures !
A rarity but a happy one for me to get photos of these pretties as they always seem so skittish and best thing is I got photos of two of them together YIPPY ! I am so happy about that .
These were smaller then others I have seen so I am guessing this years hatchlings .
Then they decided to split up again and well one at a time in photos lol !
Being down in a valley we get more moisture then the top of the valley and having a river run through it helps keep the moisture to then lots of rain after not having any for some time we develop mushrooms in our grass , thankfully Miggs doesn't like the smell of them so she wont eat them .
Cicada skin below any one ?!
They shed the outer shell like a snake sheds it’s skin and Miggs found this clung to the garden edging I had to move it to get photos as it was clinging in an odd positon to photograph !
Then I went back to the butterfly garden and saw more lovely creatures . Here we have the white Cabbage moth .
This yellow Cabbage moth was hiding resting in the grass !
Don't know what this little fellow is called but he was there pretty and tiny so I took his photo lol !
This is Mr Dove's fave place to perch now in the mornings and evenings as the sun sets .
Afternoon snacks of safflower seed !
And a nap for Miggs !
Well that's about it like I said the yard and gardens are busy once again with the cool breezes and the preparation for migration , some leave at the end of the month which is flying by , by the way and others through out September whish is creeping upon us soon already !
Until next time .
