Just a few images from an afternoon Max and I spent on the patio in late June. A painted lady (Vanessa cardui) was obsessed with getting minerals and moisture from the damp blocks of the retaining wall and patio pavers. It was so focused on its activities that I was able to get quite close with my camera.
It liked the moss between the pavers, too.
It fluttered back to the wall and got the attention of...
Max!Finally settling a little higher than the reach of a fat cat. ;-)
No matter, now Max has a tom turkey in her sights.
The turkey likes to look at his handsome self reflected in our basements windows. How funny is that?
