I know, it was just a few weeks ago that I was sharing photos from the Butterfly Garden but since it was on my exercise route this past summer I tended to take a lot of pictures there. As before, things haven’t changed; all bees, no butterflies except for a skipper. With all the reading I’ve done I’m still not sure if a skipper is a butterfly or a moth. Maybe it’s a buttermo or a mofly. I’d go with the former as the latter sound like a type of fly. But buttermo sounds like a drunk trying to say buttermilk. It’s all too confusing.
A bumble bee on the prowl for a spot to land and go to work.
This looks like a good spot.
A daylily catching the sun just right.
In addition to the bumble bees there were honey bees at the Butterfly Garden.
Just another example of me taking a picture of a flower only to discover a bug on it when I first view the photo on my PC. At first I thought it might be some sort of shield or stink bug but now I’m thinking it may be a leafhopper. Whichever it is I’m sure it is distinctly one or the other, or even a third choice, but not mired in ambiguity like the skipper.
And of course, in lieu of a real butterfly in the Butterfly Garden, the skipper I mentioned.
Thank you for stopping by,
