Plants and critters at Chesnut Park and Possum Brand Preserve.
Not many birds around in early August. It was so hot I wasn’t getting out much for a few weeks. A 2 hour walk early on Saturday mornings was all I could handle in the heat and humidity before heading home for a nap.
Just a few of the beautiful flowers we found at Aldridge Gardens in Birmingham during my visit with my sister. The weather was too beautiful to do anything indoors so we did a quick walk around the gardens before heading to lunch.
They had bee hives with glass sides. It was really cool to see inside the hive, watching the thousands of bees working.
Some of the critters around the lake. More to come on the gardens.
Brett and I stopped by City Park in downtown Denver before heading on to our next stop after visiting Red Rock Amphitheater. Right when we got out of the car I noticed the plants were covered in the these butterflies. There were hundreds of them. We must have been there during a big migration. I rarely see Painted Lady butterflies around my home so I took a ton of pictures of them.
There were lots of bees as well as a few monarch butterflies in the mix.
