Here's documented proof that a cedar waxwing landed on a branch five feet above my head yesterday, at 'Bird Paradise' in the Southern-most part of the Black Hills. I was gob-smacked! I was just standing there, scanning the botany and minding my own business...I had to step back, away from him to get a better shot. A very magical moment!
This pretty wildflower is called snow-on-the-mountain (spurge family), easy to see why! It blooms in the Badlands area, and also the S. Black Hills, where I found it sprinkled everywhere Mon.
