Busy times

Busy times this morning at Nahanton Park.
The very conspicuous Baltimore Oriole nest in the small tree next to the lower garden is quite active. Here's mom with a worm ....


 diving into the nest to be sure it gets delivered ....




















Little Henry pokes his head out!





















Mom says, "Not yet, son!" and leaves with some housekeeping in her bill.





















The bugs were out too, and not just mosquitos ....



I believe this is a Little Glassywing, a type of skipper butterfly. I found it in the upper field, along with the male Stream Cruiser below.



























There were lots of these Little Wood-satyrs around the lower garden.
