Joe-Pye-weed with goldenrod in foreground
See the bee?
I turned up a side road on the way home, a side road that is one stretch of my usual backroads route to town in the mornings, because I wanted to photograph Joe-Pye-weed and goldenrod. Flora cooperated. An insect joined in.
Then down near the bend, something more exciting came into view. A great blue heron had just skewered a frog and was making repeated attempts to get it down. Then, being a heron and clearly still hungry, he resumed a statuesque pose and waited patiently. Sarah and I continued to watch from the truck, also trying not to move.
