Satin Bower Bird

ATM Helen is photographing in, Australia

Flag of AU

This is a male Satin Bowerbird.

They are known due to "its practice of building and decorating a bower to attract females. This consists of two parallel walls of sticks, is built on the ground, and is used as a courtship arena during the breeding season. The male decorates it with bright blue coloured objects that it collects; the majority of decorations away from human habitation.

I found another Monarch butterfly caterpillar beginning to form a J in preparation for transforming into a chrysalis. I will monitor this one and hope it is not snatched by a predator. It is not in a very safe spot so I may bring it inside to complete its metamorphosis.

Frog in Gazebo at Stonecrop Garden, Cold Spring NY

Cold Spring, New York, United States

Flag of US

We found this frog sitting in a gazebo perched on the water of a pond at the Stonecrop Garden in Cold Spring, New York. Once the home of Anne and Frank Cabot, it is now a public garden featuring alpine troughs, planted stone walls, a rockery, water gardens, woodlands and meadows. There is also a formal English style flower garden that is entered through a wall that very much reminded me of "The Secret Garden," a book I loved as a child.
