Bees are very important also and there are many kinds also.



Lots of times you see butterflies and bees together

More Butterflies,  it is also time for the Monarchs to migrate,  I participated in the tagging again this year.  You net and place a small sticky tag on their wing and then let it go.

A few more different kinds of butterflies,  a couple that are very similar, one called a Painted Lady and the other an American Lady.

Driving home from work the other day I didn't have to look hard to see a hawk sitting on the light pole right by the railroad tracks and underpass.
 I turned the car around and pulled off to a side street and walked down to where it was perched.  This was so neat,  I walked right under it and got to the other side to get a photo with the light behind me and the front side of the hawk.  Of course after a bit and it didn't fly I got to thinking maybe there was something the matter.  Now I am waiting and looking if I can see anything out of place.  Not to worrry,  the train came by and it caused it to fly off to a tree farther away.  It was a young Red tail Hawk.

On my drive back from taking a couple of birds to the rehab center I saw this bird on the wire.  Am out in the country so i back up slowly and am able to stop right by this bird.  Shut off the car and got the camera out and was able to get a few pictures of this female Kestrel.  Of course the sky was overcast so made it difficult lighting.
