Full Moon Meadow

Monday, July 18, 2011

The moonlight on the landscape has been amazing in this wetter-than-normal summer. Now, with the symphony of bird song slowly winding down as summer peaks and wanes, one of the comforting things I relish most is a long summer evening, when dusk hangs on endlessly. Fireflies, whip-poor-wills, and luna moths take over for the hummingbirds, cardinals, and butterflies. Nature's daily shift change. We sit and watch it all unfold, like the blooms on an evening primrose.

Wish I was there! Just wonderful. I have lightening bugs but no whip-poor-wills.

How lucky you are to have Luna Moths and Whip-poor-wills at your place!

I've always loved fireflies. At one time the yard would be alight with them. Now it seems, you could almost count the number you see and wouldn't even have to use your toes!fqtkero
