Cape May County ~ Juniper Hairstreaks








Kimbel's Beach Road ~ Hayhurst's Scallopwing

Hayhurst Scallopwings were in double digit numbers along Kimbels Beach Rd in Middle Twp today. I stopped counting at 25. More than I have ever seen but I really needed someone with a digital counter.

August Fabric Postcard Display

As I have said before, I love making fabric postcards.  I made one of the cards (bottom right) and the rest are from different swaps I have been in over the years.  These postcards are called "Under the Sea."

My Yard ~ American Goldfinches


Male and female American goldfinches have been feeding in the yard on the seeds of blue rhea salvia for the past few days.  Quite nice to see and hope they hang around for a while.  Soon it'll be time for the common yellowthroat to arrive.

The males are almost always more brightly colored in alternative plummage.
