Garden Glimpses

It's been a very busy summer but I try to get out in the garden now and then just to see what's going on and who is visiting. Let's take a look!

Mountain Mint attracts many Pollinators

Hibiscus and Grass

Queen Ann's Lace Opening

Chippie going to raid tomatoes

Clear Wing Hummingbird Moth on Butterfly Bush

Dragon Fly on Northern Sea Oats

Hungry Hummers

At this time of year the yellow jackets swarm around the hummingbird feeders on my porch annoying the hummers when they come to feed. The hummers either hover mid-air waiting for a yellow jacket retreat or the hummers themselves retreat to the apple tree or butterfly bush. I caught a few pictures of what I thought was a female but as it struck a different pose, it turned out to be a male with its red throat!
