(I love these little green ones!)












And now there's two bats



This little guy was hopping through the alpine strawberries.  Here he is doing his best to look like a rock.  As soon as he saw me coming near him with the camera, he hunkered down in this "you can't see me 'cuz I'm hiding" pose.


I saw him!




Not a garden friend!  A bad, bad, cute garden enemy!  Strawberry Thief!


 
 
This one made me giggle.  The moment before I clicked the button to take this picture of the bee, an ant climbed out of the blossom.  This is the exact moment that the bee and ant noticed each other.  I could actually see the surprised reaction of the bee in his movements.  He flew away a split-second later as the ant ran off.
