Went to the local botanical garden today for the holiday. This Northern Cardinal was not only not intimidated by our presence, he followed us for a while.

Since I know nothing about butterflies/moths, I can't say what this large one is, but we noticed these guys fluttering all over the park. The texture of the wings was very light, almost fabric-like.

I wasn't able to get as close as I would have liked to this female ruby-throated hummingbird, but this is the first time I have been able to catch one at rest.

Final shot is not from the botanical garden, but from the woods next to my house. This female cardinal came by for a visit yesterday.

Almost forgot this little guy from this morning near my house, a White-Breasted Nuthatch.
