I was intrigued by the chipmunk who guards his grapes and listen attentively to another chipmunk. But I burst into laughter when I saw another one takes mushrooms.

The hooded Mergansers were quite peaceful, comparing the chasing GBHs. didn't get good flight shots.

Love the chips.
How on earth can the Bluegray Gnatcatcher fledgling catch up with their parents and get fed?

A Blue jay can deliver a wide variety of calls. What gets me are those howling cries that remind me of monkeys. When several are chorusing in the woods across the street it makes it seem like a tropical forest, made all the more convincing by the equatorial heat and humidity that so often prevails. Keep the pics coming Madame Butterfly.

A blue jay kept doing his RTH impression in my neighbour's tree right now. Might have witnessed the mobbing earlier.

Wonderful shots! The second Monarch shot is a pure delight. Two species on the same plant! Very nice captures. Sweet angle shots of the moths. Thanks for posting.


Thanks!

I know. I know. Didn't have time to adjust the shutter speed when the hawk was driven out by the Robins
