Adult females actually have brighter colors than males (for once the girl animal gets the better outfit!) Males have bright orange heads during mating season and we saw this one a few weeks ago, so I’m hoping this is his new girlfriend!
Usually they are way more shy than this but she was up for the photo shoot!
In some places, the beans are a good two feet or so from the teepee. I didn’t intentionally plant them so far away and sort of wish I had planted them closer, but they probably would’ve been disturbed/crushed during the “install” so it’s ok, they’ll get there!
Beans (and corn popping up behind them)

Still need to weave twine around the upper half of the teepee (I ran out doing the bottom half).
