This is a Tree Swallow that was up to the family farm property last year. This is my oldest sons favorite bird of all he clams and I don't know totally why other then the iridescent blue coloration on the birds back side. If there's any more then that, I just don't know. I do personally enjoy seeing them up to the farm flying gracefully around and singing on the power lines and fence posts in a squeaky - chirpy pleasant sound. This one was being nice to let me get a close-up of him in a black walnut tree. They like to move around a lot.

Butterfly #58. I believe this to be a Prairie Ringlet Butterfly that started making it's appearance up to the farm about two or three years ago. We had them in large numbers this year compared to the past years. You could find them very easily in the fields jumping from plant to plant ten - twelve at a time. It's a neat little butterfly to say. Not to splashed with color but happily different in it goldish coloration on the top of its wings. Hope you enjoy him !

A Cedar Waxwing from the farm. A little out of focus but I liked the angle of the first shot. I believe that it is the same bird in both images and that the bottom one is before the top. He was just fluffing up his feathers and then eventually flow off. Cedar Waxwing 040
