The electrical work passed the final city inspection. While I waited for the inspector, I flagged some plants so I can find them later for seed collection and took some pictures. Here's a sampling for your viewing pleasure:
I think this is an Indigo Bunting.
There's a mulberry tree near the highway that makes giant mulberries. Some its berries are normal and some are big and sort of exploded looking. The big berry in this picture is small compared to the ones I found last year. That fruit was so big and weird that I didn't know what it was. I figured it out later after looking at the photos I took. Unfortunatly now I can't find those photos. But I did find the tree. Here's a picture of a mutant berry alongside a regular berry.
Back on my land I took a picture of what I think is a bee mimic on some pretty white flowers.
Gorgeous pictures, as usual. Yes, an indigo bunting, a species I haven't found yet crossing our land. They should be here, and they've been seen nearby, but I haven't seen one. (very mild grump. I should be out there looking...)
