A to Z Blog Challenge 2015 – Bees, Butterflies and Birds

This year I decided to make a flower garden to woo bees and butterflies to join the birds that visit for their daily rations.

Captured A Bird Feeding

Bees are disappearing. That means honey can become scarce or non-existent. I use honey most of the time in my recipes, tea and coffee. So quite naturally I want to do what I can to keep Bees in business short of having beehives.

Butterflies are a wonder to me. I think, how can something that looks like a relative to a worm transform into an amazingly beautiful specimen. Those beautiful, colorful specimens need to take their place in my garden.

I also want to get some different birds other than the regulars to come. Most of the birds are brown ones. Blue, Yellow and Red ones would be a great additions. Let’s not forget Hummingbirds. They are amazing to look at as they flutter in mid-air as they sip on the juice I custom make for them.

The birds that come to my yard now no longer fly away when I go out to my patio to take pictures of them. I’m waiting to take a picture of a Hummingbird in mid-air.

Neighbors Bird

My neighbors have this beautiful  bird that sits on a perch on their patio. I snapped a few pictures of him while taking pictures of the one’s in my yard.

Once I get the garden growing and all the critters that I’ve invited start coming, I’ll be a happy camper when I’m sitting in the yard photographing and enjoying them.
