Wildlife on Display

Another hot summer day has passed. And it was hot!

Praying Mantis
Elkridge, MD

I managed to enjoy some quality time in the pool during the heat of the day, but I also enjoyed a walk during the morning hours and noticed some interesting wildlife. One industrious bug positioned itself right outside my door--that would be the praying mantis. 

It was a bit shocking to walk out the door and see a fairly large praying mantis hanging out on the wall. I was happy to see the bug because they eat the other bugs which are much more bothersome.

Bee Leaving a Bloom

While out on the walk, I managed to enjoy watching the bees that were busy collecting pollen from a patch of morning glorys. 

There were quite a few bees and they were very busy buzzing from bloom to bloom. 

It was still relatively pleasant during the morning hours as I walked and it was enjoyable to see the bugs out doing their jobs. 

Just another day as I enjoyed the summer and the last few days of July. I can hardly believe that the month is almost over and thoughts are turning to autumn and school starting and when I will finally be able to make a trip to Florida.
