You may be getting tired of all my chicken posts, so for a break today I've taken some pretty pics around the farm.
Here's a native Lantana, Lantana horrida, blossom about to open. The bright orange reminds me--the Hooded Oriole and his gal have shown up at the feeder for the second year in a row. They are so bold to clack clack at me from atop the seed feeder in front of my computer when they are out of sugar water. Service please!
I saw a Painted Bunting and an Easter Bronze-headed Cowbird (they have scary red eyes!) at the this feeder yesterday. Too bad I had to shoot through a screen.
And some interesting insects on a Yucca constricta blooming in the prairie. I love how architectural this bug looks. It was very shy and kept moving around to avoid the camera lens. I wonder how it's shape, especially the leg protrusions, help it perform its daily tasks?
Sunlight through a "Bright Lights" Swiss Chard leaf in the garden, reminds me of the delicious meals of it we will soon be having.
