Small Wonders of Summer.

Yesterday I posted pictures of Shenandoah National Park and here's one more. I love seeing fawns; they are so cute! 

The brown thrasher and the dragonfly were both in my back yard by the lake.

Next we have some pollinators, a small butterfly and then some wasp-type insects on some flowers. 

The final photo shows a house sparrow perched on our deck.


  1. Hello, pretty variety of birds, blooms and bees.
    I love the deer from Shenandoah, it is so cute. Great dragonfly shot, the flowers are beautiful.
    Thank you for linking up your post. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week! PS, thanks also for leaving me a comment.

  2. Gasp!

    Great shot of the deer.

  3. A most perfect outing. And, I enjoyed going along with you. Thanks for joining us at IRBB this week.

  4. Gorgeous fawn. And I love the images of all your pollinators on the cone-flowers. So pretty! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  5. Loved the cone flowers, as well as sweet little fawn.

  6. Wonderful images of summer, and so much delight in seeing the pollinators. We really do need these insects, and I think people are finally starting to realize that, without them, the whole ecosystem will collapse.

  7. I love your photo of the dragonfly, you captured it perfectly.

  8. Fawns definitely are cute ... but I enjoyed your other photographs too.

    All the best Jan

  9. Lovely summer photos, especially the fawn.

    be well... mae at

  10. Wonderful nature shots. I love your little fawn and the butterfly. I posted that same type of butterfly on the same type of flower last week. They must be attracted to that plant.
