I spent some time Saturday and Sunday mornings photographing our garden’s visitors. The Honey Bees and Bumble Bees were very active this weekend, while the Monarch cats were busy munching almost all day long. Here they are with a few other guests (click on any pic to view a larger, more detailed photo):
