After I had enough of Monarch #2, I headed over to the Ashland Community Gardens to see what might be found in their butterfly garden. There was one nice Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and a couple of other smaller species.
Not a bad lunch break for beautiful butterflies!
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail
American Goldfinch (male)
I've nicknamed it "Jail Bird".

Smart Jail Bird
PS. I started my morning at Wildwood Cemetery, looking for birds. I had just given up on birds and thought I'd add some more gravestone photos to Find-A-Grave's web site, when a doe walked across the far end of the road I was on, followed soon after by one little fawn. I wasn't able to get a good photo, but here they are anyway. I wish I knew how the mother communicated to her baby that it should go hide in the woods, but that's just what it did. She then left the area, and stood near the woods on an adjacent road, watching me and waiting for me to leave. Good Mama.
