Yellow bumble bee was the highlight this afternoon for me. I looked for birds but didn’t find much in the way of our feathered friends….phoebe, cardinal, Great blue heron, egret and heard a white-eyed vireo.
Yellow Bumble Bee (Bombus fervidus) on cowpen daisy. It was a busy bee.
Rucker’s Pond Unit 55 was full and had lots of Pink Smartweed.
There is a Great Blue Heron way over in the snag.
Beautyberry was looking… well pretty.
Jimsonweed or Moonflower. Kinda late in the day to be open so it wasn’t.
