Thunday, Thunday, Thunday!!
And I'm thad. We were at the BirdMobile this weekend and I'm so, so sad. It's the end of the the season and we are starting the 'winterizing' projects. Today I put in the storm windows to keep in a little warmth during our last few weekends out here. We will be done at the end of October. 6 more months until spring migration!! The Doodles cleaned out the Hummingbird feeder...after chasing the Yellow Jackets away! I was at the window yelling "BUZZ-BUZZ" and watching her jump every time! I'm a bad man...
This is an easy one! An Asian Multicolored Lady Beetle on Queen Anne's Lace.
That's a Large Milkweed Bug on some Large Milkweed.
There's a few Small Large Milkweed Bugs on the left of the Large Milkweed Bugs on the Large Milkweed.
I'm not sure what this is even though I planted it outside of our kitchen window.
It just looked pretty through the screen, so there.
*According to Gabrielle, this is a type of Sedum. I do remember planting that out there somewhere!
Doodles found this in her caterpillar book, yeah Doodles!
It's a Catalpa Sphinx Moth.
Another wildflower found behind the nature center at Ottawa NWR.
The Ottawa driving tour will be open on Saturday October 10th!
You can get to a lot of areas normally closed to the public.
Important update! Thanks to Jann, this is a Garden Coreopsis!
Poor Jann, she has snow on the ground already. Send her a few warm comments!
Doodles spotted this one too! It's a Smeared Dagger Moth.
