Leftovers Again

Wanda always knows how to pose for a perfect picture.

Another of Hilda feeding her kids.  I’m torn between weaning them and leaving them on their mom.  We’ll see.

The morning after I had to put Cutie back up north because she and Ava and Caroline wouldn’t quit fighting, I tried letting her out again.  When the rest of the herd went out to pasture, I let her out to catch up to them.  I assume it went well.  They always fight less when they get put together out in pasture.  I don’t know why.

Cutie on the right when they headed back out after getting fed that night.

I was really surprised to see a hummingbird moth the other evening!

Sorry for the bad pictures; it was getting dark.

It was enjoying the night blooming flowers of the jimsonweed.

While we’re talking insects, it’s time for the monarch migration.  They are everywhere!  I’m glad to see they are having a good year.

A llama just for the fun of it.  I’d hate to leave them out, but they are spending a lot of time out in pasture right now.  I don’t get much time with them between that and work.

Maybeline

As the kids get weaned and sold, my moms go back to their adult companions.  For most it’s their mom.

Athena and Cinnamon

Bambi and Daisy

For others it’s other relatives or friends.

Onyx back to snuggle with her maa, Victoria; Flower gets along with them, and Coral is Victoria’s 3/4 sister.

Chiffon and Venus: sisters from another mother.

But everyone generally has someone to snuggle with or keep them company.

    Nice pictures! I hope there was no fighting in the pasture. I’m so glad you’re getting to see the Monarch migration! We got to see a migration of Painted Lady butterflies years ago, when we were still living in southern Idaho. That was pretty neat, but I think the Monarchs would be even more fun.
    We have seen the butterfly moths, but not here in western Oregon. They were in southern Idaho. They’re interesting.
