My father owns his own company where my sister and brother also work. The yard there is near a large expanse of woods and a pond. My family always seems to find something interesting there. They have nesting Prairie Warblers, foxes living in the back, and snakes in the warehouse. A few weeks ago, my future brother-in-law (who also works there, sense a pattern?) found a large yellow moth on the side of the building. Pictured below is that moth. It's an Io Moth (Automeris io), one of the silk moths (Saturniidae).
On Sunday, my sister had an interesting visitor. The window to the office has a reflective coating on it to reduce sun glare which creates an almost mirrored surface. Last year an Indigo Bunting visited and this year an Eastern Kingbird has been visiting. I assume they love looking at their reflection, like my parakeets do. I'm convinced that all birds look mad when pictured head-on. I love this pic.
A shout-out to my sister, Mary, for providing the pics!
