    Talking So many critters! *pics*

    More pics of critters from today. I found one really weird one that I have no idea what this thing is. The butterflies were out more today but I chased this giant swallowtail forever and it wouldn't land. That thing was bigger than my hand...ah well. I did get one bird shot...the birds were really shy today. Here you go everyone:

    My only bird shot:


    Okay...what on earth is this thing? It's kinda cute in a weird way:


    This lil' guy was hoping all over the place but I finally got him to sit still for a few pics:


    Some sort of fly...pretty coloring:


    This bee was sunning himself before he went back to collecting pollen:


    This guy looks menacing but was very photogenic:






    This guy was very flighty and I only got one good shot of him:


    The Monarchs were out playing:




    Gulf Fritillary:




    And a few other pollen collectors:









    Enjoy!

    Sorry the swallowtails were feeling camera shy, but the butterflies you did capture look gorgeous! I especially like the last butterfly picture. The coloring on the photos is great. Also, I like how you can see in so much detail the cardnial's feathers. Great photos!!!

    Awww..thanks!! So glad you all enjoy looking at all the odd lil' critters I take pics of.

    I love the pic of the bee with the distinctive blue wing
    I didn't realize how blue his wings were until later on when I viewed it on my computer! Quite impressive coloration on that guy.

    Thanks all for the positive input! The weather is kinda dreary today. I hope it clears up so I can take more pics.

    Shann~
