Wings and Things

I've not posted for a while, things are good here and the summer has been mostly mild

I did see a Pileated Woodpecker last week but I did not have my camera outside..and I didn't want to TRY to get it and miss my sighting.
I was so excited.

Mama Wren took the Chickadee box after they left.
Here she is , peeping out at me

Hubby's Butterfly & Hummingbird Garden.

Hollyhocks..I didn't get many blooms this year.

Our Caladium at the edge of the yard.

Looking down into the backyard from the deck

The biggest I've seen and it was on the Jalepeno Plant
The darn squirrels ate most of the peppers, I even saw
one eating the BIG pepper we had.
Do you think it's a Katy Did?

The picture below..on the left of the can see
him (barely) on the brick. I wanted you to see how
high he was sitting.
He's a Tree Frog, his lil feet look like suction cups.

I like frogs.

I wonder how the frog got there.

That's quite a tiny frog isn't it. Your husband's flowers are beautiful. I'm glad you're having a lovely summer.

Glad all is well Deena, as I thought about you the other day and wondered where you'd been! :c) Your summer photos are beautiful. Love your little frog guest. Have a beautiful day.

Cute froggy!! When our neighbors had their pool, there was a frog living under it (in it?) and I loved hearing him croak at night. Soothing music......
OH, you saw a Pileated Woodpecker? I haven't seen one in a long time now. Maybe it will come our way!

Tudy said...

I was told it was a leaf bug. I posted one awhile back and Terry told me what it was. Mine too was very large and inside my home. I still have not figured out how it got in.

So much nature wonder at and photograph right in our own backyards. How very lucky we are.
I love the buterfly you see many Mourning Cloaks where you are? I've been trying to get a pic of them but I'm never quick enough.
