Bruce,

I think your backyard visitor has been to my home too! Although I didn't see him and he is too bashful to show his face, he mistook our lamps hanging on the barn for bird feeders.

This butterfly stopped to get a drink of water from a puddle while I was washing the garage doors.

Rich, we often see evidence of their visits even when we don't see them - foot prints like yours, spoor, a torn apart tree stump (looking for ants), etc. Watch out, you have one in the area.

Yesterday afternoon our neighbor called while I was at Chili's to tell us there was a big swarm of bees in our front yard. When I got home, there it was, as big as a loaf of bread, hanging on the shrub just a few feet from the driveway and sidewalk. I called around and found a guy in our area who does live removal, which is what I wanted. We need more bees -- just not in my yard!

It was pretty interesting to watch him work. He put a net over his head and fired up the smoker. Then he hit 'em with a little smoke to pacify them, and just shook them off into a cardboard box. He waited a bit for some of the bees in the air to get into the box, then sealed it up. He cut a little "door" in the bottom at one end, and waited for some of the stragglers to join the group. Then he covered the hole with window screen. The bees will be given to a beekeeper, to pollenate crops and make honey.

I see short sleeves were fine with him.

Yeah, a little bit of wood smoke really makes the bees mellow.

That is pretty neat Ray. I got into my grandfathers bee hive when I was about five. I never went anywhere near it again.

While fishing at a lake in NW Washington State, our grandson came across this slug - huge by comparison with those we see here in New Jersey.

Been having fun taking photos of a hummingbird that visits one of my wife's beebalm flowers this summer. Using my recent Canon Powershot SX50HS superzoom camera, set at continuous shooting. Just point where the bird is feeding and blast away. In this session think I took around 150 photos, but discarded over half due to missed focus, the bird moves around so much. Had to use ISO 1000 to be able to shoot at 1/500 sec., f/5.6 on this dark day. This image is greatly cropped from the larger original.

I live a half hour north of Tampa, FL and we had 23-1/2" of rain during the month of July shattering the old monthly record. The retention ponds are full, flooded streets - what a mess. I saw these Roseate Spoonbills and sea gulls wading in a church lot having a good ole' time.
