A Second Look 7-6-11

This week, we finally had a little rain with a couple of thunder storms. It must be good weather for bugs because the bees were buzzing, the flies were flying, the katydid's were jumping, and gnats were annoying.

Also, our friend, Mr. Squirrel, has figured out our "squirrel-proof" bird feeder. If he keeps most of his weight on the pole, he will not trip the lever that closes the door to the seed. It might be my imagination, but he looks fatter to me.

Below are pictures of some of the things I found this week during my Second Look around the yard.

If you look carefully, you'll see several bees among the coneflowers.

Fat, but clever squirrel.
