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.
