These pics were taken back in August. I just never got around to posting them till today. I was strolling the grounds of Sweetbriar Nature Center when I saw this Butterfly Bush that was covered with butterflies, mostly Monarchs and Black Swallowtails. But, as you can see in the photo above, there were a few Skippers around as well. JK

These pics were taken in November at Sweetbriar. I am almost always behind in posting my pics. In fact, I still have some summer pics that are still waiting to be posted.

This handsome devil is a White-breasted Nuthatch. Besides their looks and their rather nasal call, Nuthatches have another distinguishing feature. They have the curious habit of working their way down a tree in their search for insects. Most other birds work their way up trees. Nuthatches are individualists. Plus sometimes they make for some cool pics. JK
