Heard the voice. Saw the large splash. Have heard bullfrogs here in the summer for at least the last two years.
Anna's hummingbird (Calypte anna) perched on the top of our fig tree in our back garden. We have hummers all summer, they are attracted to many of the plants in or garden and seem quite adapted to people. We often see them as we have dinner on our back deck. It was fun to capture this one still, I caught it from on of our windows. The fig tree tip is about 6 meters above ground level.

We saw naturalists observing and collecting data on butterflies at Maple Pass in the North Cascades. This is a photo of a butterfly with surrounding habitat.
