Flutter and Bee.
Finally, a sunny day. I've never seen the ground on my property so wet. You can't even step in some of the gardens without going up to your ankles in mud. Even the front with some lawn which is normaly very dry is so wet that you can hear the water squish. I got my running shoes soaked along with my feet while out fixing up a few things. Why didn't I wear my new wellies you might ask.....the answer...because I don't want to get them dirty. I have worn them to the shops twice now though and they are wonderful.
The black flies are out in force now along with some mosquitoes. They get in your eyes, mouth and up your nose. Inside your clothes as well if they can manage that. I've had to give it all up and come inside several times this morning. Of course all this wet weather and the warmer temperatures is the best thing that could happen for them. Anyway, I'm not complaining TOO much as it's a treat to see the sun. And, they are saying another sunny day for tomorrow.
So, I got my first shot of a butterfly for this season and also one of the first bees. I didn't manage to get the bees face but never the less it's the first bee photo of the summer.
Also got a picture of a water drop. I find it facinating how you can see the trees in these drops.
That's it for today, I am now out and at it again. Got to take advantage of the sunshine.
