This week I saw.
A Hummingbird resting on a branch.
A Golden Crab Spider on a Daisy along with “the catch” awaiting another.
My peonies first bloom in many years…yes just one flower but a well appreciated one.
Great shots - especially the hummingbird; wow! I have enough problems getting clear shots of the family, let alone creatures like that. Very impressed.
Nice photos! I'm really into spiders this year. Yellow Corn Spider is still alive and well and eating her but burritos just off the deck!
Those are some excellent photos! How did you ever see the Golden Crab Spider? Have a great weekend.
I didn't know hummers ever stopped to rest. Great shot, and congratulations on the peony flower. :-)
You are definitely a birdie photo taking pro!What camera and lens are you using?
My Canon Rebel 4 and a zoom lens:)
nice photos - I catch hummingbirds rest every once in awhile. I really like your dandelion fuzz picture in your heading! Have a great Friday!
Great shots. Hummers amaze me with all of their energy.
Beautiful photos, but I'll pass on admiring the spider for too long: I'm not a fan of arachnids.
Is that what those creepy spidies are called? I've always wondered...and stayed away from them, lol.Jen
Nice shot of the hummer! They sure don't sit still for long. The peony is such a pretty pink!
What a cute crab spider, I have never seen one like it, itwas pink and white?
Yes it was, it seems he can turn a golden yellow color slowly to get lost in the Goldenrods:)
Hummingbirds love Minnesota. I had forgotten how late the peony blooms in comparison to the ones south of you. It is a great looking red peony.
Very nice photos. Haven't noticed that type of spider...must look a little harder when I'm in the garden.
What lovely sights to see indeed!
Lovely captures ! Thanks for sharing , have a good weekend !
Good catch with your hummingbird.
Incredible shot of the hummer. We enjoyed hummingbirds so much at Nalley Valley. Rarely do we see them here. That's a lovely color of peony.Wishing you both a nice weekend. Hugs to Chance.
What a vibrant color on that coveted bloom! Wonder what makes your peonies so temperamental...glad it decided to show its face this year!
Beautiful shots, but the spider gives me the willies! ;)
I've never seen a "golden crab spider" before...fascinating and good looking for a spider! I love peonies but mine hasn't bloomed in several years here. Yours is so pretty...love that color! Down here they call them pe-onys...like ponies but with a long "e" and emphasis on the "e"...pee-onys...I had no idea what they were talking about! LOL!
Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your comments! If you have a question I will try to answer it here. Connie
