Birds of the Day: Red-bellied Woodpecker, House Finch, Northern Cardinal, Chipping Sparrow, Blue Jay, and Black-capped Chickadee. I think the Eastern Phoebe has given up on the nest above my front door.
Early Summer Wildflowers: Plains Coreopsis, Lemon-Mint, Delphinium, Larkspur, Lance-leaf Coreopsis, Rigid Goldenrod, Blanket Flower, Mexican Hat, Sweet Black-eyed Susan, Cornflower, and Yucca. I managed to save a few of the Yucca flowers from the ravenous deer.
Mowed the lawn. Time-lapse video recorded with a Garmin VIRB-360 camera.
Daily Electric Energy Used (61.2 kWh) from Sense. Daily Solar Electric Energy Produced (82.6 kWh) from Sense and SolSystems. Sun and intermittent clouds. A surplus of 21.4 kWh. The solar panels continue to produce more energy than required to keep the house cool with the energy efficient Geothermal HVAC system.
Daily walkabout with a Nikon D5 camera and 80-400 mm VRII lens. I mainly focused on flowers today. Bumblebee on a Marigold, a Blue Larkspur, various Sunflowers, Zinnias, and a Hummingbird Clearwing moth (white legs) attracted to Lemon Mint flowers. I didn’t see any butterflies.
Daily Electric Energy Used (47.8 kWh) from Sense and Daily Solar Electric Energy Produced (63.3 kWh) from SolSystems and Locus Energy. More sun, and higher temperatures for a net surplus of 15.5 kWh.
