New visitors to the garden

This Checkered White butterfly came to the garden this week. Is rare to see this butterfly in my garden, their usual habitats are cultivated fields, roadsides, and weed lots.

This Rock Dove is common in city parks but this is the first time one comes to the DragonFly.

Update on the Owls: The Screech owl is gone, I didn’t get to see the baby fly out of the nest, mother and baby left in the middle of the night. I hope she'll come back next year.

Rusty, love the butterfly shots. And the bird house door. Life is bustling at the DragonFly.

Lovely butterfly....I think my baby Eastern Bluebirds left in the middle of the night too!

That's a different sort of butterfly than I've seen up here, Rusty. Fascinating to contemplate the many varieties, isn't it?! You were so blessed to have those owls visit...I do hope you'll see them again next yr. That'd be exciting!
