Work Stoppage


Chores were put on hold yesterday when a quail family visited our backyard. I took a quick photo of a chick on our outdoor table before putting the camera away. Over the next ten minutes the quails, led by dad, took a bath in water “reserved” for honey bees–they also drank out of terra cotta saucer; i.e., they didn’t bathe in the the water they drank.

And on the butterfly front, the Painted Lady returned during quail fest.DSC_0032.JPG
