Fall Bees, Butterflies, and Birds

My contribution to Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #147.

Perhaps you'd prefer a butterfly, like this Pearl Crescent?

I usually see Great Spangled Fritillaries. Here is a Variegated Fritillary.

I'm also contributing to Anni's I'd Rather B Birdin'. This mockingbird will direct you to the animal clinic:

The vultures are very happy that we build power line towers for them.

Hello, it is nice to see the honeybee. They are having troubles lately. The butterflies are beautiful. Love the mocker. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

Love the vultures...and got a 'kick' out of what you said "They love us for building the power lines for them". Cute.

Beautiful butterfly images too.

I'm late getting here to visit with you, it's been a most beautiful day here in South Texas I just HAD to be outdoors this morning - birding, of course. Thanks so much for sharing this post with us at I'd Rather B Birdin'!! Always appreciated. Have a great week ahead.

Again, terrific lens you have. The bee & flutterbies are in such nice focus.

Wow those butterflies!

Our vultures also do the same :)

Beautiful critter photos, and your butterflies! I actually took some cool photos of butterflies while I was in Alabama and box turtles and I'll share them this week!

That is a sweet, Pearl Crescent. I keep seeing them fly around...

Hello!:) We have seen loads of Fritillary butterflies this year, but not the ones you share today, great shots of all the birds and butterflies.

I, for one, rate for the vultures... a big part of nature's cleanup crew. They need more love.
