Very good. We are getting into skeeter season, and I will be slapping a few...!

I hate skeeter bites!

How did you get such a good picture? Looks like he posed for you.

Annie said...

Did you get that photo this season already? Yikes.

This photo was pure luck that I happened to have my camera ready to take a flower photo and the skeeter just landed (actually not even sure if it is one but it works for me).

Love it when camera is nearby and such moments can be captured, well at least those who can operate the camera in this way, unlike Denise thicko here!


Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
