What is this Bird?

I realize this is not a very good quality picture. However, I wanted to post it to see if any one out there knows what type of bird this is. I spotted this funny looking bird and several of his family members one day at our feeder and then have never seen it again. If any one knows what this bird is I would appriciate the info.

to draw interest.

Butterflies

We have had so many butterflies this summer.
Here are a few shots of them. I think I need a little
more practice to learn how to get good pictures
of them.







I love how colorful these guys are!
