Nice macros of the butterfly!
New Hampshire Gardener,
These and earlier photos with the ‘late’ eaglet do seem so odd. Is it just the male adult that is still tending the eaglet, or is the female still at it too? Just curious. Buckeye, with its distinctive pattern is always so beautiful with your macro camera. The purple flowers sure add to its color.
The female is bringing food as well. In the next post from Tuesday it brought a large fish and did not take it to the nest but a tree back behind the nest. The eaglet chirped and chirped jumped all over the nest. Finally after about 20 minutes it flew back to the tree and the female dropped the fish in the grass for the eaglet. This might be here trying to force the young one out of the nest and to look for food on its own and not wait for delivery? The buckeyes and the purple flower do make a nice color combo…
