After several days of cooler temperatures and overcast rainy days, the sun came out. There were bees in great numbers. There was also a large dragonfly so I stood still waiting for it to land. It kept going around me until I was almost at the point of taking a video of it, then one of the chickens finishing a dust bath, shook herself and ran across the grass in my direction, scaring off the dragon. So, walked around to see what was on the go.
A Spider, I didn't realize it was so scary looking until I got up close and personnel.
A flutter of some sort, very small, will have to look it up.
Not at all sure of what this fellow is. Interesting markings though.
Bees, bees and bees.
Blessed thistle, a bees delight.
