A Lovely Clarkia I think. I found it along the river last week while kayaking.
A Chipmunk that was hiding under a fallen down tree in the Sunny Binghamton Collage Nature Preserve Area some few weeks back.
I have been making this arbor for our grape vines in the back yard over the last three or so weeks with the family and all. Painting, nailing, cutting and all that fun stuff. For the most part it is all done now so I thought that I would share a couple of images of it with you all today. I'm quit happy with it so far and I have enjoyed gathering some hanging flower plants to place on it.
A Blue Jay that was watching over my vegetable garden yesterday, probably hunting for bugs I think. He would fly down from that perch to the ground for a second or two and go right back to the metal steak.
Some flowers I planted last fall that are starting bloom in the back yard from this past week. For now I'll just call them Blue Bells. They are inner mixed with my wild Golden Rode that will start to flower in late August.
A Black-capped Chickadee.
A picture of a Belted Kingfisher I took a couple years ago. It's been difficult to get pictures of this allusive bird even when I know that he is in my general area.
A Cedar Waxwing that was in the back yard last year.
A picture of a Painted Lady Butterfly that was on a Brown-eyed Susan plant from last year.
