A Clouded Sulphur butterfly in the flowers on the fence.

This Gulf Fritillary butterfly didn’t care for the trumpet flowers, but loved the tall white and yellow wildflowers.

The undersides of the wings show here, with their silvery white spots.

The Carolina wren was back today, but another wren came along, and the two wrens were chasing each other furiously. I didn’t have the camera with me so I missed a lot of it, but after I got the camera out I took a couple of quick photos. You may be able to see the wrens fighting on the ground here. The one on the right with its head up seems to be winning–it’s hard to see the other one.

Neither seemed to be injured and they flew over to sit on the fence. This rumpled wren looks as if it’s still upset. After a few minutes of rest, one of them flew at the other and they started all over again, chasing each other across my neighbor’s yard.

Mockingbirds were everywhere as usual. This plump-looking mockingbird sat on the post by the tomato pot for awhile.

She doesn’t look very happy about having her picture taken here!
