Those are self-planted Asian Raspberries on fence, left..I had thought they were native 'til a year ago. They're for the birds. Rubus odoratus (native Thimble Berry) will eventually replace them..
|Wait, what is that in the woods...??|
A young Baltimore Oriole in the rose bush..
waiting for a chance at the berries...
And look at the butterflies in the flowers...Camera in hand, down to the garden..
|Pink Edged Sulphur|
|Monarch in for a landing|
|Dreamy Dusky Wing (Skipper)|
|Northern Pearl Crescent, opened|
Oh right, the windows..back up onto the deck, wax on, wax off..but look, young robins are searcing for berries!
|They crouch, then fling themselves into the berries|
|A fledgling waiting on the fence|
|Makes it into the berries..|
The window does get washed..one, one window..but this morning I don't even pretend..
|Breakfast with a Bluejay|
|And a Robin|
|A Tiger Swallowtail drops by to say hi|
|American Painted Lady, case opened|
|And shut..the windows can wait!|
