During breeding season male House Finches display beautiful red coloring while their mates are less showy.
This is a California Painted Lady dining on the seed pod of a Gillardia (Blanket Plant). The petals had all dropped.
The contrast between the rusty old barbed wire and the wildflowers I feel compliments each other. But of course wildflowers compliment most anything. Have a wonderful day.
I found these two dining on a “butterfly plant” This is one of my favorite butterflies because of their striking yellow color with the addition of blues and orange to their lower wings and “tail”.
I am fortunate to live in an area where wildflowers are abundant and unfortunately so are bugs! But ladybugs are a favorite because they prey on destructive insects. Enjoy your spring wherever you live!
I don’t generally see these guys in my area, but was fortunate to have a pair spend the winter with me. They are entertaining to watch.
I love country landscapes combined with country sunsets.

I was photographing for our local wagon train waiting for them to appear around a corner for a special shot when this young lady landed close to where I was standing. I took a chance and hoped the wagon train would hold off long enough for me to get some shots of her. I was lucky.
