Buttery Critters

Well finally a butterfly arrived in our little garden. We have been awaiting their arrival all summer, with many of our plants inviting their return and visit. So, this morning, a swallowtail arrived to dine at our garden cafe. They are such lovely, gentle creatures.

And finally, a monarch arrived in all its glory, truly a glamorous critter.

And with the ending of the grand Olympics, I thought we should acknowledge one of the masters of form, our very own hummers. Here are two shots worthy of the gold, for form at least.
