The Birds and the Bees

22 Jun

I’ve written quite a lot about flora lately, so today it’s all about showcasing some local fauna: a few of the birds and bees (and a bug and a chipmunk) that I have had the pleasure to encounter in the past couple of months.


A cardinal in flight in our backyard…

  
A robin at Brookside Gardens in an optimistic (but ultimately futile) bid to score twine for its nest; a makeshift bird beach at the US Botanical Garden

  
A Canada Goose guarding his territory at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens; and a bee coming…


…and going.

  
And finally, a dragonfly and a chipmunk, each going about their business earlier today at Brookside.

    The cardinal? Incredible shot.

      Thanks–I wish the photo could have been more in focus, but that cardinal was way too fast for me! Perhaps the blurriness helps convey a sense of the motion, though. 🙂
