If all this flora and fauna are on your property, I want to rent a room, sit, and do nothing but wait for the next photograph to scream "snap me, snap me!"

More beauty than I can take in on an overcast Saturday morning!

These are fabulous pictures! You are lucky to be able to attract them. I have tried without luck so far. I've tried sugar water feeder, oranges and grape jelly...I put half an orange out this a.m.; will see if it attracts anything other than ants! lol I did see a bluebird yesterday on my neighbor's roof - that was a thrill! Of course my camera wasn't handy at the time. I also love the pics of Rosie in the clematis!

That is a fine looking oriole! I have one that built a nest in our maple tree with some of the blue plastic threads that he pulled from one of our tarps. He must have felt that his first nest with them was so magnificent that he comes back every year trying to get another female to help him build another nest with them. No takers yet.
