OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThat light left a few surprises this morning. As I was putting out seeds I noticed what I thought was an old leaf stuck to the lawn chair … On closer inspection – not a leaf – a moth! And when I stopped to look at another ‘leaf’ I realized that the chairs and the walls were covered with all kinds of winged creatures who decided this was where they were going to rest out the daylight hours.
