hot with breeze

90 degrees in the car on the way home from work. here, it's 86 with a good breeze, almost enough (but not quite) to keep away the black flies. last night's almost full moon was lovely. and my camera picked up this spruce where hummingbirds sometimes nest.
what you aren't seeing here are lightning bugs. so soon! out back i saw them, just a few, just starting up the season of flashing earthbound stars.
i had some fun with the camera, a bit of moon play, a moondance, and the lightning bugs getting in on it in the meadow. they'll be up here, soon, but last night they were keeping the woodcock and tree frogs company. a lone coyote called once, longly. summer early this year.

i think it is good to "witness" it. acknowledge it. honor it, even tho to me it
portends hard change.
