A few Butterflies and a Hummingbird in the yard

Skipper on Blanket Plant bloom.
Two skippers on a zinnia bloom.
The next 3 photographs are a Variegated Fritillary.

Sorry I didn't have the correct lens on when this single hummingbird came for a very short visit to the zinnias in one of my flowerbeds next to the driveway.

Oh, I love the hummer! It's as if he's peeking to see what you are doing! The flower placement is perfect. Beautiful butterflies.

Leedra, you have such an eye for composition. I learn a lot just looking at your pictures....they are all so beautiful.

Hope your day is just as beautiful!

Your butterfly shots are so awesome! You must be very patient.
I too like the pose of the hummingbird. I saw two fleetingly yesterday at my petunias and know they will be leaving me soon.

Leedra what lovely photos here. I like the two skippers on the same bloom. You think they were conversing with each other?

Like the last pic of the hummer.

Hope you have a marvelous weekend!

Wonderful, Leedra!

Wonderful! The little skippers are such fun to watch and they do love the flowers. I never see any fritillary butterlies. Love the hummer on the flower.

Heidi said...

I envy you that you have so many butterfly opportunities :) I enjoyed them very much a few years ago visiting the east coast.

As for the hummer... well, not only still a beautiful image, but I can also relate. Happens all the time to me.
