This Common Buckeye butterfly was flying around the yard today. I love the colors on this butterfly.


Mockingbird on a wire out front. More and more mockingbird activity every day now.


We’re up to four robins hanging around the backyard now. Robins migrate through here in big flocks in the fall and spring, but for the past couple of years we’ve had one or two that stayed in the area. Now there are four of them, all looking very satisfied with their location.


I like this photo of a robin considering its next move–walk farther up the branch? fly away?
