Gloriosa Daisy Blooming in September

Meet again the Gloriosa Daisy! These flowers were still blooming in late September 2014!

Unlike the Black Eyed Susan these Gloriosa Daisies have a ring of color, if not color through out the yellow. Nice looking flowers if you ask me!

Gosh does any two Gloriosa Daisies look alike? That is the question?

The Gloriosa Daisy grew most everywhere we sprinkled some seeds at!
Pretty easy to grow!

Lazuli Bunting Birds Visiting

Meet the Lazuli Bunting bird. Isn't he pretty?  

I had to be in my archive yesterday. I came upon these photographs I have never shared before. Actually, it looks as if I did not look through this whole file..... ? These days I put notes for myself in my photography albums of what day, so I know what I did when. Otherwise the photographs get lost in the shuffle.

Taylors Checkerspot Butterfly

Meet the Taylors checkerspot Butterfly! I photographed this colorful Butterfly feeding on one of the wildflowers found here in Oregon.

Spadefoot Toad Mating Time

Welcome to a scene that was going on in this pond the other morning! It is mating time for more then the birds and the bees right now! 

Some background. We put in the ponds for our dogs to cool off here on the hot days in the High Desert here in Oregon. A couple years went by and we noticed more and more aquatic activity was happening! Since berries need a good water source and we like berries, we put in Raspberries. Well, then we noticed the birds really liked the berries more then we did!

Mylitta Crescent Butterfly And Beatles

This caught my attention while out and about on one of my walks here in town! This Mylitta Crescent Butterfly and these Beatles on this weed flower feeding.

Of course having this many Beatles in one place may not be something this farmer wants to see on his valuable crops? However on the weeds.......

This Mylitta Crescent Butterfly did not seam to care these Beatles were on the flower the Butterfly chose to land on. The Beatles were not as relaxed about sharing!

Wood-nymph Butterfly

Meet the Wood-nymph Butterfly! See the Butterflies eye spots?

This Wood-nymph Butterfly is feeding on these wildflowers. As you look through this series of photographs, watch this Wood-nymph Butterflies face. You can clearly see this Wood-nymph Butterfly feeding!

Red-tailed Hawk In The High Desert

Meet the Red-tailed Hawk of The High Desert of Oregon! If you visit here and see a Hawk, this might just be the Hawk you see first?

You may see the Red-tailed Hawk in a topped Juniper as this one is. Why the topped Juniper tree's? The Red-tailed Hawks are not small birds, not the largest birds of prey we have , not the smallest either!
