Lovely photo, linrose. I love your chickadee, 'Lib. Did you build the house yourself?

I seem to always have bug pictures. Maybe I'm just obsessed... or maybe my yard is infested?

Starting with bees, since bumbles are amongst my favorites. I think the one bee on hyssop is the better photo, but I really like the two bumbles holding hands as they share the coneflower

A dragonfly...

And a two assassin bugs, young and old, patrolling my yard for other insects to eat. I tell you, pollinators run a real gauntlet every time they approach a flower!

Excellent photos, everyone! I'm glad I'm not the judge.

Gorgeous swamp milkweed, Linrose! I like how the flower seems to mimic the clouds!
