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.

  1. Nice work!
    Your milkweeds are about a week ahead of ours. Now we are seeing lots of Tiger Swallowtails and Hummingbird Clearwings and a few skippers. The Monarchs and Vanessa will arrive in a few days.
