Our yard has been a busy place recently for things with wings. Just yesterday, I happened to catch a juvenile bluebird enjoying a bath. That blue!

The butterfly bush just outside our bedroom window is living up to its name. Sometimes I’m fortunate enough to get a picture.

We also have a white mandevilla on our deck. Apparently, butterflies are drawn to it, too.

  1. Lovely photos……..David is trying out his “wings” today – has gone flying in his plane……and to borrow part of Rabindranath Tagore’s quote, I’m SURE he will be “glad he has had his flight” …….


  2. Beautiful photos, Dianna! The bluebird looks quite content.

  3. Beautiful pictures. The Bluebird is my favorite. What do they call it – The Bluebird of Happiness? It sure made me smile this morning.

  4. And I posted butterfly pictures today as well but not nearly as stunning as yours. I love that bluebird!

  5. Picture perfect!

    AMAZING PICTURES!!! The Lord has given you such talent, Dianna. ❤

  7. Lovely! It is great that you take time to notice what is happening around you. So many people are in such a hurry to see the beauty in their own backyard.

  8. Awesome..
    A great ‘blue’ theme, also –
    that last butterfly has the smallest touch of blue at the back of the wing..

  9. Those are hypnotically tranquil. This just doubly inspires me to make a butterfly garden next spring.

  10. Aw, a bluebird! I do love that blue! Nice butterflies, too.

  11. Beautiful winged creations. Great photos. I love seeing your wonderful photos of the menagerie of creatures and cuties that bless you with their visits.

  12. Love the bluebird! We enjoy our bluebirds so much. Sorry I have been absent Dianna, haven’t been feeling well and turns out it was a kidney stone. I think I am back… 🙂

  13. The butterflies have practically devoured our butterfly bush.
