Alive and buzzing

That time of year when the heat begins to fade and all manner of living things have a short spell to catch their breath and blossom is in mid-arrival, or so the bugs think. There are monarchs taking over the Hill. They are fluttering and spreading all types of pollen. There is a gaggle of drunk bumblebees are the corner of my street. They are sloshed from too much moonflower nectar. Some never make it out of the plants alive succumbing to death by intoxication. The crows are brattier than ever behaving like young teen boys with too much energy and not enough distraction. Even the earthworms are bubbling up. This morning when I walked through my garden they were littered everywhere just like the robins waiting for me to leave so they can pluck up more breakfast.
A little rain and a few cool days and life looks totally different around here.

    Wow! May I ask what your weapon of choice is?

    I shot this with a Rebel XT and the Cannon efs: 17-85MM lens which I use as my 24/7 carry it with me all the time tool. I literally take it everywhere. Recently I had a friend meet up with me and he about passed out when he realized he’s known me for over a year and never seen me without it..he sees me everyday. I had just left it in my office because I’d gone through two batteries that day. What I like about the Rebel is the small hand-print and the nine i-beams I can choose from, pretty standard but I really love the Rebel for an everyday-everything snap-catcher.
