A view from my living room window shows we have a lot of humming birds visiting my feeder. They put on quite a show as they fly here and there so quickly. I’ve seen an abundance of Downy Woodpeckers lately, too. My husband drove his four-wheeler down the road past the grove of trees and reported lots and lots of Monarch Butterflies. Nature has so many pleasing pleasures for the eye to see.
