Great Spangled Fritillary

I am seeing a good number of Great Spangled Fritillaries this year. This one was hanging around in the yard taking advantage of wild and cultivated flowers.

This is our Ruby-throated Hummingbird coming in to see who is feeding in her flowerbed this time. She’s one tough cookie and doesn’t take kindly to strangers. This is the only photo I’ve managed to get of her. She is constantly on the move and does not pass up an opportunity to harass the Titmice that stop for a rest in her favorite tree.

One of my favorite butterflies! They breed and live in our back field - always excited when I see the first one on the wing.

Wonderful shots. Loving the detail of the butterfly on the thistle just before the hummer appeared. That is funny about how protective it is. I saw a documentary on Hummingbirds and how they even got upset over a mechanical hummingbird flying around. It was pretty cool just like your photos were.
