I recently visited the Butterflies LIVE! exhibit at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. This photo of a Tiger Longwing on a red coneflower was one of my favorite shots from the trip. If you’re in the Richmond area Lewis Ginter is definitely worth a visit.

White Breasted Nuthatch II
White Breasted Nuthatches have the odd habit of creeping down tree trunks. This one stopped to survey it’s surrounding. In the process it showed off it’s flexibility by craning it’s neck more than 90 degrees to assess the scene. This photo was taken on a rainy day and you can see a tiny drop of water clinging to the bird’s belly.
This tufted titmouse is taking a break between trips to a nearby bird feeder. Titmice are quite gregarious and are often found with chickadees. They are always one of the first birds to notice when my feeders have been refilled.
