One of the neatest things was finding a praying mantis in the backyard (the one below), and then finding another one twice as big the next day (the one pictured here, which really must be seen large). This after not seeing one for years!
- Smoke from the Fintry fires, probably 70 kilometers away, just before our soaker rain that seems to have put a good dent in it.
- A closeup of the smaller praying mantis, looking right at me.
- Lake reflections at the Summerland pier.
- More globe thistles, minus the bee.
