In the garden

Watching birds is captivating. These are some of the little dudes I’ve snapped in our back garden recently. Oh. And butterflies. Just because.

We have a regular gentleman caller in the form of a very handsome tui, and there are lots of fantails about at the moment, too, though I don’t have those on film.

How about you? What are some of the feathered visitors to your garden?

Song thrush: isn’t he a dandy?

Waxeye: so cute – almost disappears in our unmown lawn

A lady blackbird (so, not really black at all, then…)

Goldfinch: don’t you love that flash of yellow? And the red mask. Just like a superhero.

Monarch butterflies feasting on Fatsia japonica. The bees love it, too.
