Hope you are all staying safe and cool. Sounds like everyone is having a pretty rough 4th of July, between fires, heat, wayward cattle, and destructive thunderstorms. Grab a cold drink, relax for a moment, and visit nature's creatures in the garden.
A few years ago I noticed a big decline in the number of bumble bees on our property. I am happy to say they are back in full force. I enjoy watching them on the delphiniums in front of the porch.
I was lucky enough to get some great shots of this hummingbird moth. My husband pointed out that it might hang around more if I stopped harassing it with the camera.
I found this spider to be a tad disturbing. Doesn't it look like a little skull?
Mad Bluebird eat your heart out... I have the Grouchy Grossbeak.
A glass of homemade wine, a beautiful view, and visiting my blog friends on the computer. It was a wonderful Fourth of July.
What a sunset.
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY
