White Butterfly On Marigold

White Butterfly On Marigold
It is not true that marigold will deter critters away. I am telling you, I have planted marigold as border around my little garden, and still found critters of all sort coming to visit. I have seen birds hiding among the flowers trying to find something to eat, squirrels digging holes, and wings friend like this white butterfly loving marigold.

Closer to Butterfly
She was a great teaser! Flickering around as us blinking our eyes every second, but she did stop for a little nectar, and I got my snaps! They are not at all what I had hope to get, but still beautiful for what I could do. I am grateful for the opportunity to say the least.

Menace Squirrel

Squirrel

Squirrels are fun to watch, and make a great subject to photograph. They are cute but very menace at the same time. They eat anything, from flower bulbs to flowers, and they dig holes all over the yard to bury their treasures.

Squirrel Eating
Everyone seems to go "goo goo ga ga" when they see squirrels, but not for me! I've lost too many flower bulbs to welcome them in my yard. They ate my tulips, daffodils, lily plants, sunflowers, and gladiola bulbs to name just a few. What about you? Do you like squirrels?

Yellow Baby Sunflower

Baby Sunflower

A tiny little yellow sunflower came up after waiting for months. Nothing seems to grow well this year but some were patience enough to make an entrance to the earth. Small and all, this yellow sunflower grew, bloomed, and very beautiful.

Yellow Baby Sunflower
This sunflower was about 2 feet off the ground, but it had flower, which is amazing to see that though small, the beauty and joy that it brought to us is the same. Grow, baby, grow!

Pretty Purple Weed Flowers

Purple Weed Flowers

Growing among the hostas plants are these purple weed flowers. They come back every year, and despite being pulled by the root, they still survived. Yes, they are very pretty to see, but if not controlled they can be very invasive.

Pretty Purple Weed Flowers
Since they grow on this side of my house, and turning my driveway into a jungle, I had to pull them after taking a few pictures. Sure, I feel bad, but if you've heard "growing like weed", you would have no choice but to do the same.

Cabbage White Butterfly

Cabbage White Butterfly
This cabbage white butterfly has to be one of the most popular butterflies to see. They are everywhere, and in plenty, but they rarely landed at one spot for long. I am not sure what this white butterfly is eating from this mint leaf, but I was happy that she stopped for a few second.

Close Up Shot Of White Butterfly
I swear I saw her head turning around to look at me! Her eyes were glue on me for a while as if she was curious about me as much as I was of her. She was small and beautiful, and the sun on that day gave me such assistance on some clear photos.

Beautiful Hostas

Hostas

I found that hostas flowers are hard to photograph as it grows vertically and the flowers spread out. Often I like to do macro shooting of just one single flower, but with hostas it doesn't show how pretty this flower really is.

Beautiful Hostas
Thus, I settled for the whole view, and to my surprise, it turned out beautiful. An entire side of my neighbor's house, these hostas flowers bloomed, and multiplied thicker each year. If they are not taking care of by thinning out, my driveway would be overwhelmed.

Pretty Birdie

Pretty Bird

Spotting this bird in the shaded area on my walk, but not quite know the name. It was so pretty to see and very shy. I wanted a close up shot, and the bird didn't allow that to happen.

Pretty Mourning Dove 
After searching the web, describing it in every which way that I could think of, I found out that this is a mourning dove. The name is quite peculiar to me, but the explanation was when they are calling for each other, their sound is sad..Hmm, I wish I could have heard their voice!
