They really are quite pretty, aren't they?

Actually, the vine visible in the photo is Sandvine, also known as Honeyvine milkweed. It's a common host plant for monarchs, especially later in the summer.

You're seeing what we all see. It looks like it was a well-timed shot that caught the bird as it shook its head.

That looks like it could be a very young Chinese Silktree, by the pods.

Leaflets are pretty widely-spaced, though.

Looks like you caught him mid-trill! :)

Given the wings, it's an adult, too.

That appears to be a rose. Possibly a wild rose. Was it growing wild or was it cultivated?
