Honey bee – just as I clicked in Publish I noticed the two little ants at bottom center.


Female house finch on right, male in center, and I think some sort of sparrow on the left


I sure hope that as readers started scrolling through the photos everyone found the intro to this post at least a little bit funny and did not think I was serious.  I never know how my words might be taken when one can’t see the smile on my face or hear the tone of voice that is going on in my head while I’m writing.

I’m going on an eight day trip so I won’t be posting for a couple of Tuesdays.  Headed to our favorite beach destination (St. Pete’s Beach, Florida) to get away from the heat and humidity here in the St. Louis area.

Thank you for stopping by.


All photos taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Nikkor 80-400mm telephoto zoom lens.

  1. Nice shots, David, and I always enjoy your humor. Your unidentified bird is a Eurasian Tree Sparrow. A native from Europe and Asia, about 20 of these birds were brought from Germany in 1870 and released in St. Louis. They established successfully, but have stayed primarily in your region and not ventured in numbers very far. So I’ll not find one of these in my area (unless by luck of a wanderer!). Enjoy St. Pete’s.
