Got one lucky shot of a bee in flight. Disgustingly, it was flying towards a band-aid. Yuck!
On the way home, I got off one bus stop earlier and walked around Sawmill Creek to do some bird-watching.
The first bird I saw was this shy Gray Catbird (Dumetella carolinensis) hiding in a hawthorn tree. First catbird of the year!
Under the shrubs, there were some flowering Large-flowered Bellworts (Uvularia grandiflora). Notice anything interesting in this photo?
Yep, on the right side of the photo there was an Andrena bee flying towards the flowers. Here is a cropped image of the above photo.
There were several Yellow-rumped Warbler (Setophaga coronata) around the wetland, but all of them were too fast and far away for me to take a good photo.
The Red-winged Blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus) are a bit easier to photograph.
Taking off and showing off those beautiful shoulder patches.
