The yard is autumnal now…well, for Phoenix. Anna’s Hummingbirds above.
And they are even getting ready to start posing in my little tableaus.
A few butterflies have stopped by:
Fiery Skippers, Sleepy Orange, Dainty Sulphur
Those are very tiny Western Pygmy Blues in pink muhly grass. They are very small, 1/4 to 1/2 inch.
I’m sad to say that the little Orange-crowned Warbler who has wintered in our yard for the last 5-6 years did not return this year. I suppose they can’t live forever…but she won’t be forgotten and we will go through a lot less grape jelly without her. This is her last March and early April right before she left. Bye, “Tink.”
