Pretty things at Bok Tower Gardens

Lots of little critters at Bok Tower Gardens in late September. Very few birds. The best one was the white eyed vireo. It was a good morning to work on my butterfly shots.

I found this butterfly couple flying around. Only the top butterfly was flapping. Assuming they are mating?

I was looking for bugs and saw this big eye staring at me from behind a leaf. After climbing around under the leaves for a few minutes he stopped and took a nap on a stalk. He was not much bigger than my thumb.

A mid-summer trip to the zoo

It was very hot in late July but I stopped by the Lowry Park Zoo early one Saturday morning to see how the wild baby birds were doing.

There were a few late little blue heron babies still on the nest but I didn’t see any baby house sparrows.¬† I saw a few nests tucked away around the gift shop but I didn’t see or hear any babies at that time.

The eagle has landed.  After being absent all summer, the eagle is back in his usual winter Saturday morning spot across the lake.

I saw this weird stuff growing out of the tree. It looked like it could be merengue but I’m guessing some kind of lichen.

I was excited to see another baby deer at the park. Mom and baby stayed pretty far back in the woods. These were taken from the parking lot and heavily cropped so they are a little blurry.

The teenage buck is still hanging around the family.

The older baby was feeding close by the family. Her spots are getting a little fainter.

These were all taken in late September.
