Thanks, y'all! I just learned that orioles drink nectar, just as hummingbirds do. I must round up an oriole feeder now. He's big and beautiful!

I'd like to see photos from other KHers, too. anyone?

Isn't he gorgeous? I was knitting the BSJ out on the "verandah" (the patio) and he was suddenly there, a few feet away. You probably have them nearby as well.

I'll be watching for your photos!

I just took some the other day of grandson with a frog he caught and the frog made a noise and he ballooned out .He probably didn't like being upside downAnd him watching the humming birds. You have to really look for the humming bird in some of the pics because they are in flight. One is by the pole, the other between the trees.Other grandson feeding neighbors horse (horse is nature isn't it?)a apple.I took some earlier this summer of a bee and a butterfly.And two from last winter.
