Birds are now going into their Summertime slump, except for Goldfinches and Hummers, whose activity GREATLY increases this time of year. This is the slowest time of the year for birders so we fill the gap by becoming......INSECTERS!!! Especially Butterflies and Dragonflies. Today I had an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail AND a Spicebush Swallowtsil side-by-side on a patch of mud in my front yard. I ran for my camera but alas, the batteries were dead. I quickly threw the batteries on the charger, and waited the fifteen minutes for them to charge. That done, I ran back outside with the camera to see the Tiger fluttering away happily and NO sign of the Spicebush. Not to worry. "They'll be back!"
Kingdoms RAGE and go to war...but the PEasants plant potatoes..
EARTH FIRST! (we'll strip-mine the OTHER planets later.)
