The Yucca and Prickly Pear flowers are in bloom. There are several new wildflowers (and I am not sure of the ID). I also am seeing more poppies (Red, Icelandic, and California). Individual images from the slide-shows are available here.
Blue Jay’s and Northern Cardinals at my bird feeder. I don’t think that these images taken with a Fuji X-T2 camera and 100-400 mm OIS telephoto zoom lens are as sharp as the ones taken with a Nikon D5 camera and 600 mm f/4 lens. Part of the issue may be that the images with the Fuji camera were taken hand-held vs. on a tripod for the Nikon camera.

Afternoon walkabout. The zucchini plants were getting too big in the Garden Towers because they were using too much water, and their leaves were blocking sunlight from the other plants. I attempted to transplant the zucchini plants. After a day they still seemed to be alive and still flowering. The Garden tower (level 1 (top) — tomatoes and carrots; level 2 — various lettuce; level 3 — various herbs; level 4 — peppers and peas; level 5 — zucchini (now gone) and swiss chard; level 6 — broccoli and cauliflower. The blue jays have become the dominant bird at the bird feeder, even though they are too big. It is funny to watch as they have to take the sunflower seed away and find somewhere hard to break it open, whereas the cardinals and house finches are able to open and eat the seed just with their beak. The only wildflower for the day is a daisy.
