Campsis Radicans Fence

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:

Here's the Streambank Mock Orange. Note that the giant bin being used for the neighbors' 10 month long reconstruction project is finally gone. Not gone: the bazillion mosquitoes that grew up in that bin.

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

Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

That first shot is my favorite. I need to hunt down some more fences with flowers for the linkup.

The flowering vine on the fence is so pretty. Also a nice shot of the dragonfly.

the hummingbird vine looks lovely twining over the fence.
