Blurry Bee!

Yes, I know the bumble bee is blurry, but the bee balm came out okay!  “Always look on the bright side of life…”    It’s stuck in your head now, isn’t it?   : )

After the rain

“Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.”  ~ Demosthenes ~

 

I was glad to get out and take pictures today.  The mosquitoes are ganging up on me — huge ones I’ve not seen before.  They look like Asian Tiger mosquitoes on steroids.  Maybe a cross between a mosquito and a sparrow.  I use mosquito dunks and drain everything I can think of, yet they come.  The woods are holding lots of water puddles because of all the rain we’ve had.  I can only do so much.  I’m lucky to have dragonflies to help me out.
