Here are the other ducks that were hatched here. The adult on the back right is the one who hatched three this spring, only to lose them all to the other ducks. Now she hangs out with the five nearly grown from her sibling's brood (originally 8) like a surrogate mother.
That makes a total of 13 ducklings hatched this year... that I know about.
On a brighter note, here is the best view I've ever had of the question mark on a Question Mark butterfly.
In case you're wondering, it's perched on the faded lettering of our mailbox.
A lot of damselfly mating going on.
|Spreadwing, either Plateau or Southern|
Still haven't seen a female Eastern Amberwings. Just two males again today.
