Below is one of our more traditional visitors. Our sprawling Turk's Cap plant has been a bit hit with them this year.
Not wonderful photos, but taken from the patio, about 30 feet away, so about the best I can expect, I suppose.

I'm sharing today's post with Camera Critters. Please stop by and see what other critter photos bloggers are sharing.
