Baby Birds, Butterflies, and Art Glass ~
 Mama robin has been patiently sitting on her eggs. This week, I saw for the first time baby robins. The nest in in a butterfly bush right outside the studio door. The nest is the center of butterfly, bee, and hummingbird moth activity. She has grown used to us and I was able to take this photo as she guarded her babies.
 There are so many butterflies in the yard. The hummingbirds enjoy the nectar from the butterfly bush and fly out as soon as I come near. The butterflies don't seem to pay much attention to me.
 This tiger swallowtail butterfly was moving all around the flower. Isn't it beautiful!!!!!
 Mama robin was away when I came around to the front of the house. I took advantage of her absence to take a photo of the nest. Well, she didn't like that at all. She was swooping at me.
One little robin poking its beak up. They have just a bit of bird fuzz and when they are awake they make their own little bird noises.

Three fused glass bottle stoppers are looking for a home. They are twenty dollars plus shipping and handling. Imagine them on bottles of wine or sparkling cider, art is great for everything!
