Today, awake at 5 am to chase a Western Kingbird at the Oxbow with Les.
No kingbird, but still.
A day overflowing:
A quiet, chill Sunday morning
Perfect for watching the world with a like-minded soul
Adding to my ever-growing list of things that fly
We watched a thousand swallows dance over
A million sparkles of light
The smallest things caught my eye and became beautiful
A small animal in need found us and came home with me
(He's not staying.)
Afternoon: Germantown Metropark with my family.
A different place but the same feeling of overflowing
Enjoying an elegant lady resting
Dancing with dogs,
Catching baby leeches by accident
And pursuing an Eastern Tailed-Blue by choice,
Showing that elusive blue, just a glance, like fancy petticoats under a printed muslin.
