We have several clumps of beared iris around our place. These relatively early bloomers have a strong, sweet scent that reminds us of grape bubblegum. Quite intoxicating! It seems this bumblebee finds them attractive too!

About Today’s Photo:

I hike the Franconia Ridge in the White Mountains the other day. Two ravens were mingling with the other hikers atop Little Haystack Mountain looking for dropped food or handouts—no doubt a pretty reliable source of food for the birds. Ravens are very intelligent birds (like all corvids including crows and jays). I got the impression that these two birds hung out on the summits a lot as they were quite used to people (not necessarily a good thing…) They let me get within about 3′ of them! Mt. Lincoln is in the background looking north along the Franconia Ridge.
