That white flower is just a brilliant photo…
(Have you considered entering wildlife phot competitions?)
I’m probably going to do an art show highlighting all of the animals which will be made homeless by the City of Boulder and University of Colorado’s plans to destroy the South Boulder Wetlands. Almost all of these photos are taken there.
From Washington State:
Hope that works. The undersides of each petal have a pale green stripe.
When we moved here, and I saw the first of these (ours bloom about July 4th), I took several dozen photos. The one linked to is not one of mine, but looks about the same.
I have a nice dragonfly too, but they are rare at our place.
Nice photos — thanks Tony.
For years now I have had two seed blocks out year round outside the south facing double hung window in the dining room we just remodeled. They are in hanging feed cages hung from a double shepherds hook that has a squirrel baffle on it. I always try to have one seed block that has nuts that attracts the woodpeckers and Nut Hatches. The other is for attracting song birds.
The woodpecker block attracts Hairy, Downy, and Red breasted woodpeckers and they nest fairly close all year. This morning I witnessed something I have never seen before. Two Downy woodpeckers arrived but one was a fledging chick. The chick held onto the double shepherds hook with it’s tail resting on the squirrel baffle to keep it from sliding down. The adult then spent the next 3-4 minutes pecking off pieces of the seed block and feeding it to the chick. Because the chick has not yet gotten rid of it’s pre-flight down it looked bigger than the adult that was feeding it.
The wildlife seems fat and sassy, not at all negatively impacted by “climate change”.
Looks like the Monsoons are about to fire up in the Southwest, three or four weeks earlier than normal.
…three or four weeks earlier than average…
Because when it comes to weather, everything is normal and within the range of natural variability.
Hurricanes and their remnants tend to bring a lot of rain with them.
More importantly breaking down the high pressure ridge which has been sitting over the southwest.

We can only pray that is the case. Great pic of a Sago Lilly.
Keep in mind that all this beauty and unbelievable life is nothing more than the impersonal outcome of purposeless evolution…/sarc.
In Nullifying God, I show that evolution as presented is biologically impossible and has but one purpose – to eliminate God.
