APAW – Things With Wings

Nancy’s choice of subject for this week’s Photo A Week Challenge is Things With Wings so to kick things off, I brought back my feathered friend from the Chicago River for another appearance. I took so many shots with different poses and angles that I don’t think I’ve ever had to use the same picture twice.

Some beautiful wings at the Chicago Botanic Garden butterfly exhibit. A must-see at the Garden every summer.

Taking a stroll around our own back garden earlier this year, it was good to see plenty of bees buzzing around, and as usual there were grasshoppers galore.

    • Thank you! I was taking these pictures when our mail carrier arrived and said she wouldn’t want to get so close to all those bees. I told her it’s not the bees I worry about, it’s the wasps. Far less reliable.

      • I have this root and flower stimulator I use as a root drench and foliar spray. The bees, butterflies and wasps go nuts over it. They get so caught up, I can damn near noose boop a wasp and they don’t care. I do trust the bees more though.

    • Thanks, Marianne! I was thinking about a caption for that first picture. It just cries out for something funny. It looks like I caught him in mid-scratch but he could have been waving at me or even doing a little dance.
