Red foxes, blue wings

A late morning walk today brought some surprises. First, this very calm Red Fox at the pond:

In the undergrowth along Florrie's Path there was a nice mixed flock: a silent Warbling Vireo, Common Yellowthroat, Black-and-white Warbler, a Chestnut-sided Warbler, and this Blue-winged Warbler. None of them cooperated very well with my camera!

Ruby-throated Hummingbirds and Blue-gray Gnatcatchers were also present in good numbers, as well as this Swallowtail and
this Twelve-spotted Skimmer.

  1. Haynes,

    What incredible sightings and pictures. How surprising to see a fox at that time of day. Are the warblers migrating early? The butterfly and dragonfly pictures are fantastic!
