A Walk Around the Neighborhood and in the Garden

Georgia, Skye and I decided to take a short walk around the neighborhood in lieu of a beach walk because it was bloody hot and humid out. Unfortunately, along the way, Skye ducked under vine, which unhitched her collar from the leash, and I had to go off and chase her while Georgia went home to wait for a call from the number on her collar. It was a relatively short chase; two streets up the hill she made the mistake of going onto someone's deck with only one way off, and I managed to corner her. On the way back, we met a young friend.
 Later, Georgia caught this female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird taking a heat bath on the deck rail under the feeder.
 After a while, I went out to see what kind of butterfly life was out in the garden. Zebra Swallowtails, although not as abundant as some years, are at least still fairly common.
And the Eastern Tiger Swallowtails still visit the Butterfly Bush
 As did this Clear Wing Hummingbird Moth.
 A bumble bee in Georgia's Cosmos.
And a Zabulon Skipper, another regular.
