When I was but a wee lad in Massachusetts, this was a really rare but in that part of the world. I remember once being very excited to see one in my grandmother's flower garden in Danvers. Have they become more common, or is this still a very unusual sighting?

Beautiful photographs! I loved looking at your blog. I found your link on my Dad's web site... Dad's Tomato Garden Journal.

Keep up the good work!
