Eastern Tailed Blue Butterfly
The celosia and cockscomb attract many pollinators
Like a magenta brain! (cockscomb)
Cockscomb is such a cool plant; reminds me of coral!
Here (on a less vibrant yellow celosia) you can see how the seeds form. The seeds form similarly on cockscomb.
The plants that are this color are so vibrant and saturated a deep, deep magenta; hard to capture the saturation in a photo!

Blackberries are blooming/fruiting for a second time this year; this one branch has reached far over the deer fence.
Loofah Gourd vines on the teepee finally blooming
More loofah gourd blooms
A feather (turkey?)

The cave has a small spring with very cold water flowing out
