Cucoo's 4th of July

Cucoo invited some friends over to help him celebrate the 4th of July yesterday....They snacked on tender tidbits they found around the watergarden and surrounding flower beds.
Pictured here is Cucoo chatting with one of his guests, the snail.


Cucoo announces that the buffet line is ready..."Don't be shy now...there are plenty of bugs for everyone!"


"Hmmm...where is that fat little bumblebee? He was here earlier...I'd settle for a honey bee right now, I'm so hungry."



And after dark all of Cucoo's guests were treated to a show of lights, put on by the Fireflies, which lasted for about an hour. Everyone went home with a full stomach and a smile on their face.

What a fun day and evening for Cuckoo and his friends...was that vampy little feather head from the neighboring post around? I've been waiting for a romance to bloom there..*VBS*

No wonder Cucoo is so slim. Those bugs are probably fat-free! I hope Mr. Snail wiped his feet and didn't get slime everywhere.
Sandy, you did really well with the tiger swallowtail and dragonfly pics! I linked you and Tuffenuf on my latest post...I was thinking about us all chasing butterflies :)
Your holyhocks are beautiful....great picture. Hope Cucoo didn't get his beak stung :)
Glad he and his friends had a happy Fourth and saw some great fireworks!
