Damselfly, Birds, and Irises

Bees, birds, and various bugs are more active and fun to take pictures of this time of year.

I saw a lot of damselflies in the grass meadow.

The dove couple love to hang out at the birdbath and socialize.  They don’t really jump in much, but they take their time preening and pretending this is their territory.

Dan also got a shot of the goldfinch couple at the birdbath.

We were so excited to have a robin build her nest in our crabapple tree.  Yesterday morning we had the ladder out and did not see any eggs in the nest, but maybe there are some today.

The irises are the big show this week!  The robin is near the top of this crabapple tree.

Dan turned the compost on Saturday.  It is not quite ready yet, but moving along.

Dan was my big helper this weekend.  Here he stood to stretch his back!  In front is baptisia australis – false blue indigo, and the leaves of the chinquapin oak and the hydrangea.
