  2. Beautiful! I can never get butterflies to be still long enough for such a pretty picture.

  3. Great shots - and I'm happy to see the mighty roadrunner finding southern KS to its liking. The various pollinators are what make a closer look at flowers even better, not to mention food for them!

  6. Great pics - the first is stunning! And I love the second, too. Odd - I've never seen a roadrunner in a pear tree. Shouldn't that be a partridge?

  7. Holley: that's the first one I've seen in a tree also. Extremely odd, it was trying to get away from my camera. Generally they run away. Some day I'll doe a post on him/her.
    DG:flower is a Native Echinacea angustafolia "Black Samson or Sampson Coneflower. Insect I'm not sure.
    Rev: thanks
    Diane: that is not normal for a roadrunner to be in a tree. so you get a double prize!
    David: I agree, you get two for the price of one. Isn't that unusual for the rr to be in the tree?

  13. Great photos! I love the roadrunner! I didn't ever think about them sitting in trees. Once (when we lived in Texas) I opened my front door and there was a roadrunner standing at the front stoop. We looked at each other for a few seconds and then off he ran. It was a very cool experience!

  15. Beautiful photos! I'm partial to butterflies, but the last photo of the roadrunner is really something.

  16. Great photo of the roadrunner! You got such good photos of the butterflies! I just planted a milkweed plant a month ago...no sign of butterflies (or larvae)...yet.
