Here are the birds and bugs that caught my eye at BHCL:
Great Spangled Fritillary
This beauty flew out of the meadow grasses and landed on the trail right next to me, where it proceeded to spread its wings as if to say, "Take my photo please."
Looking very pretty at this time of year.
Trogus Pennator Wasp
(Sitting on a monarch leaf, about to sip from the bee balm.)
Oh, last night I left the deck light on for about 20 minutes and attracted this pretty moth.
Pale Metanema Moth
