GREAT photos! The Giant swallowtail photo is really nice. Loved seeing the scarlet tanager (I've never seen one) and the orioles and grosbeak. I have difficulty getting the butterflies to hold still long enough for me to focus my camera. You did great, though. :)

One of the Benefits of gardening--seeing all these creatures enjoying the garden as much as we do. Great photos!

Is the oriole a pitcher or an everyday player?

I love your backyard garden photography . . . you have taken some incredible shots. I too love to watch the birds. Our neighbor built us a little red birdhouse that looks like a camper trailer. It wasn't more than a week when we saw that it was occupied :) It's so cute that if I were a bird, I would have moved in, in a minute :)
I love making new blogging friends and just hit your follow button. I do hope that you will come to visit and follow me back. I have met the nicest people through blogging. Now that I am retired I don't have the connection with people that I had when I was working, blogging has filled that need to surround myself with lovely friends.
I hope that you are having a wonderful day and that we'll become great blogging friends.
Connie :)

I am working on our bird feeding area as we speak. The first photograph made me laugh - I thought the plant was laughing at me! I am not paranoid I promise - just need to get out more lol!
