I am very sad never to have seen a Green Jay. They are a bit to the west of me. Such colourful birds.

You have found lots of Goodies to show us for the letter G, but that last one was plain Gorgeous!

PS Thank you for the comment - I'm not sure, but I think it is kittiwake.

We get to see the Gross Beaks , but not the Green Jay. Such a handsome bird. The butterflies are lovely too.

Beautiful photos as always. The Green Jay is so beautiful! We always hope for a glimpse of a Rose-Breasted Grosbeak during migration times.

Just beautiful G's! Love them all, especially the Green Jay. Would love to see one of those in person. I wish the Grosbeaks would stay around here all year. They're one of my favorites! Happy Wednesday! -Tammy

Hi Sherry....poor tattered butterfly....he has had many lucky escapes by the look of things. The colour is beautiful very autumnal.....perfectly fitting....

Green Jay.....this is a new one for me....you certainly have colourful birds in your part of the world.

It must take ages to put these posts together. They are always so very interesting. Your G's are beautiful.....I love the world of bugs and birds.....

love the fact there are so many wonderful things that begin with G. abbey and i looked at these together during our lunch break and she was more than excited to see what all you were sharing.
she asked me to ask you if she could use a couple of the shots for her science project.
you can email me,either way you decide. rosebudn6@aol.com
thanks for such great photos.

The green jay is just gorgeous - it's a new one for me too.

Glorious Gs Sherry. Although we obviously don't see them here I have always been taken by the Green Jay.

Beautiful photos as always :)

Great G's Sherry. I haven't seen any RB Grosbeaks lately. We have had a few warblers come through.

Jay said...

Such a great group of Gs! I particularly like the Grey Hairstreak, and (my favourite) the grasshopper! I love the way the knot in the wood near him looks like a star in his 'hand'!

Judi said...

Gorgeous!

Naturegirl said...

I love all your "G'S" the grasshopper is quite colorful!!!
I've never seen one like it!!

Tumblewords: said...

Gorgeous autumn colors, already! I've never seen a green jay. Actually, I didn't know there was one! He's quite attractive! GreatGPost!

Rose said...

I've never seen a Green Jay before--what a colorful bird! And you can make even a grasshopper look lovely, Sherry.

Mary said...

Is that Green Jay yours? I don't remember seeing a Green Jay here before. Lucky you, Sherry!

Judy said...

Lovely, as ever!! I have not heard of a green jay before. Yours is much prettier than the one in my bird book! And I am so impressed with the detail you caught in the goldenrod!!!

Wendy said...

Your little butterfly does look rather tattered. But the colour is gorgeous. I like your green jay. Not a bird I've ever seen, although I think you posted a pic of one a while ago.

That little grasshopper looks quite elegant! Don't know how you captured it so well. He looks positively gallant!
