more july wildlife

I find that the hummingbirds prefer the small-flowered canna....

It may not have as spectacular of a flower as the large flowered types... but... who cares when the pay-off on the small-flowers is in attracting these sweeties?
And visiting the salvia...
I totally avoid feeders... I feel like they harm the critters... makes getting pics a bit more of a challenge, but I'm not putting out GMO products or poisoned bird food... or helping spread bird diseases...

 Pigweed caterpillar, I've never seen these b4.

Phlox... with butterfly.

Rhynchosia minima, snout bean...a natural wildflower

House lizard...
Got a better pic of the bird on her nest...
