I have been super busy. I gathered seeds, took photos, failed at caramel apple jam, went bow hunting, and wandered around the yard taking photos.
These bees are were fighting over the hollyhocks.
It is rare we have a monarch butterfly here. This one did laps around the lawn and for fun dove through the sprinkler.
This wooly caterpillar was headed towards the peak of the cabin. He probably thought it was a wonderful tree. I rescued him from disappointment and let him go in the woods.
That is what I saw on my yard safari. What is wandering around your yard?
