It looks like the birds greatly appreciated their peanuts,
by etching a heart shape in the empty pot

Everywhere there were diamonds in the grass, when the son broke through.

light play

Playing with the lights on my window.

Suddenly he sat on my knee,
a hairy brown caterpillar,
He ran as fast as he could down on my leg.
I offered him my chair.
Meanwhile I grabbed my cam to find out who he is.

When I searched the web it looked like a Buff Ermine, Gele tijger, Spilosoma Lutea.
The butterly is a yellowish, cream white moth.

He was kind of in a hurry. and did not want to spend a lot of time on my chair.
soon he was off, disappearing under some plants.

This morning while sitting outside,  I noticed a bumble crawling through the grass.
I wondered would it be the same bumble I saved from drowning 2 days ago?
So I stood up to have a closer inspection.
It was the same one! easily recognisable by his broken wing.

He was wandering all over the grass, searching for...I guess some honey
and because he is not able to fly and I noticed only one little clover in the grass,
it would be a miracle that he would find that only one flower.

So I put him on a stick to move him to the clover.
He immediately enjoyed the honey!
When he was finished with the clover I put him on a bunch of lobelia's. so that he would find enough for today.

By the movement of the water, I noticed that someone was in danger.
It was a bumble.
Somehow he had fallen in the pond and he could not come out.
When i came back with my camera, I saw that he did not move anymore.
Quickly I made a photo and dragged him out of the water.
It looked as if he did not make it.
But when looking closer I saw him move and stirring his antenne.
After a while he tried to cleanse himself with his legs.

When I looked closer, I noticed that his left wing was broken.
Maybe that was the reason that he fell in the water?
Who can tell.
I looked in the water for the part if the wing that was missing.
Maybe he lost it when he nearly drowned.
But I did not find a missing piece of wing in the water.
Anyhow he was well able to walk.
After a while he crawled in the grass.

 I love anemones, especially the white ones.
I bought some new ones, because they are addicting.
This time my eye was caught on the stamen indifferent stages.

Molting blackbird

Blackbird is molting.
He looks a bit funny with only a few feathers on his head.

One of the last poppy's in my garden.
My camera wanted the background behind the poppy as well.

While the wind was playing with the poppy,
he more than once was focussing the background instead of the poppy.
The background is beautiful as well!
