Spring Turns to Summer (2020)

A mama orchard oriole perched in a colorful mimosa tree a few minutes after sunrise.

Here are some final images from spring as we transition into summer. It has been a strange year so far. I find watching birds and other critters a great way to ease anxiety in these trying times.

A goldfinch surveys the landscape from a coneflower on a rainy day.

Goldfinches are always attracted to coneflowers, first as handy perches and later in summer as a source of food. How fortunate we are to see these two beauties together.

A spring monarch, my first of the year.

A whitetail buck displays the velvet makings of an impressive set of antlers.

A coyote in its not-so-impressive summer coat.

Coneflowers reveal a breeze right before a storm.

A bluebird on its favorite perch on a foggy morning.

Mama orchard oriole with one of her babies.

An indigo bunting in prairie flowers. What a colorful scene!

I wish you all a wonderful summer.

Happy Naturing,

  2. Great photos! Really enjoyed your post. I have some coneflowers, I’m hoping to catch a Goldfinch or two on them at some point!

  3. Excellent images, as always. Here (in Bangalore)we have transitioned to the monsoon, and spent a mild( by Indian standards) summer locked indoors.

  4. “Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom.
    How do they learn it?
    They fall and falling,
    they’re given wings.”

    ― Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi

  5. Your wonderful images and insightful writing makes my my day brighten.
