Like my dear Bug, I have been so random of late. Squirrel! See? Enjoy some random pics:

A Golden Sunday

Even as competition was wrapping up at the London Games, a lovely American Goldfinch couple dropped by for Sunday brunch in our hanging basket out front. They had the best time! I hope they recommend us to their friends...

 Hmmmm...there's a lot of rustling and cheeping going on out there.
 Whoa...that's not a bumble bee!
 Why hello there, Mr.!
 There's someone else back there, too...the Mrs.?
 Yeah, yeah, you're the pretty boy...
 All decked out in your summer finery...
 But I really want to see who that is hiding in the shadows.
 There she is!
 Striking a pose...
Then turning back to her brunch.

Sunday in Spring Valley

Spring Valley Wildlife Area is a wetlands area in the Little Miami River Valley. I go to the nearby shooting range every now and then to punch some holes in paper (great stress reliever!), but today The Bug and I went for a walk around what looks to be one ginormous frog pond! Alack, I saw no bullfrogs, though we heard them, but we did see wildflowers, dragonflies, butterflies, birds, and more. We had a nice nature walk, though it turned a wee bit muggy on us. Enjoy the pictures!
