Nice visitors to your garden!

Looks like you have a lot of friends!
I was surprised at the number of visitors in this heatwave.

I love that kind of wildlife! I think your second butterfly may be a silver spotted skipper.
Me too and I just missed the elusive Hummingbird shot (since my camera was in the house of course). Thanks for the possible id.

Lovely images, Racquel! There seem to be so many more butterflies this year than last, which makes me happy. I seem to be taking as many photos of the all the visitors to my garden as the blooms. Glad to hear you finally got some rain.
Thanks Rose. I haven’t noticed as many of them this year. Now I did see a Monarch yesterday but didn’t have my camera on me (of course). And this season they seem to be a bit skittish about photo ops.

Great photos Racquel. I’m boo hoo’ing because someone else got a Black Swallowtail photo when I can not!!! You did a terrific job my friend. Despite the heat, your garden is doing well to have this abundance of winged friends.
Thanks Kathleen. Sorry about the elusive Swallowtail shot, I feel the same way when bloggers post pics of hummers.

These are the kind of visitors that are welcome, unlike the garter snake I found first thing this morning!
Eww..yep I would of been freaking out at that kind of visitor in my garden!

Cool shot of the dragonfly!
Thanks Tina, that one was a bit tough to capture. So I had to stand a bit back & zoom in.

Your pictures are beautiful. You must have patience and a steady hand.
Thanks Balisha, it takes alot of patience to capture these critters on camera that’s for sure.

Fun! Great photos!
Did you get rain last night? We had quite the rain and wind here. No damage (except deer munching a few cosmos and even a castor bean leaf! )
Thanks Cameron. Nope no rain here last night. We got a bit the two nights previous though. But we could always use a bit more. Oh my, munching Castor Bean Leaves? Aren’t they a bit spiky?
