On goldenrod about 1.5 to 2 cm
Found on my lawn
sunning on a mustard leaf
Small moth between 5-10 mm. It was out on a cloudy day and on Mexican sage.
I'm not sure what kind of bird this is. But it's about the size of a humming bird. Looks like an eastern phoebe, but I'm not sure.
Looks like an ant but without a waist so maybe something else. It is quite unique looking and was about 1cm so quite large for an ant. It is crawling on the mustard that is growing in the backyard.
Looks like an ant mimic in the true bug family.. Thoughts?

Some type of fly on the frostweed.
Still seeing Monarchs in the yard daily with good weather. I had tagged this monarch UPJ211 at a girl scout event on Thursday, 4 days ago before the rains a few streets over and let it go. It showed un in my yard on Monday, the first sunny day since the rains. Nice to see it can find it's way back to my house where I caught it. I suppose i'm the only house in the neighborhood with lots of native flowers still in bloom.
