Food for the critter visitors

I bought a pot of yellow coneflowers at the grocery store last week.  A couple of days later, I caught this tiger swallowtail and silver-spotted skipper visiting it.
While I took a few pictures of the butterflies, a chickadee scolded me for being too close to the birdfeeder.  Of all the nerve!  Even while I stood nearby, the chickadee visited the feeder.

Each night the moths gather at the window, attracted to the light.  This green tree frog waits to get its fill.  I would say I watch the frog eat the moths, but the frog is so fast, I can only say I see the moths disappear.

Any visitors at your place lately?


  1. Wow! Those are remarkable photos. That frog picture is amazing.

  2. Cannot help but like the pictures. I think I always called butterflies, Monarchs.
