Some Summer Critters



Sharing some of those sweet summer critters that visit the garden...


Love to see the small Tortoiseshell butterflies drop in...


These two were like a mirror image of each other - the twins!

I had meant to share this quite some time ago after the swan hatched her eggs at the Forest Park and had two cute little cygnets.


Linking with Eileen for Saturday Critters HERE

Happy Saturday!

  19. Our bumblebees are pretty much gone for the season. I do miss them not that they've been replaced by the dreaded yellow jackets. - Margy
