My contribution to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #125. This is a Campsis radicans, aka hummingbird vine.
One day, a flock of mockingbirds lined up along the construction fence at my old elementary school. Here are two of them:

And here's an Ashburn dragonfly (female Eastern Pondhawk - Erythemis simplicicollis).
