The bumble bees are so busy this time of the year feeding on a lot of different kinds of flowers. I don't see the honeybees much but they are smaller so they are probably out there. Bright sun and shadows are strong so I really never could get the bee into focus. I just saw a goldfinch at the coneflowers this morning. I don't think there is any seed ready for them to have but the bird must have been checking things out. I do know there are plenty of bugs out there and maybe it was looking for them.
I have picked four cherry tomatoes now and I am certain that I will quit counting as there are so many of them. I am thinking this variety was the cherry 100's as I look at the bunching of the stems on the end of a branch.
I missed a photo of a black swallowtail yesterday. I only saw it once and it never came back. With its color being so dark, I first thought it was a small bird. I hope to get a shot of it but I don't always make those things happen. The small white butterfly did hold still for me for a while but the yellow small one didn't land long enough for me to even point a camera its way. The white one is enjoying the flowers on the mint plants.
The pears are looking great this year. The bees really did do a good job of pollinating them. I have so many of them. The variety must be a small sized one as I saw a pear tree a few blocks away that had huge, larger, pears on it than these are.
It is Tuesday and I have things to do. I keep plugging along and hope to see completion on some things today. I quit setting goals to be very high now that I am taking it easy. Getting things done is just the goal. Thank you for stopping by today to visit my post.
