I stopped to hang my newly repainted sign coming onto my property.
Then coming within sight of the oasis, I was pleased to see how green and lush it still is in late October.
I don't often see butterflies nectaring at the hummingbird feeders, but maybe this Red Admiral managed to get his head inside the port and reach the sugar water.
This Empress Leilia wasn't as successful. The type feeders I use (Dr JBs) have internal baffles to prevent bees from reaching the solution, which probably hinders most butterflies too.
Nothing sweet on my camera lens either. I hope.
The red lantana I planted this summer sure looks happy.
I planted a third Woolly Butterfly bush today. The first two didn't make it. I'm determined to keep the new one from freezing this winter. That species grows wild down by my sister's place. I don't see why I 'm having such a hard time with it. Sorry, forgot to take a photo.
