rain and hail and mist and hot and 2 dragonflies. blue jays. robins. chickadees. sparrows. a kestrel with 1 sparrow. hawks. red-wing blackbirds.
a bat. trying to determine butterflies. so there's a white admiral that's actually black with white bands, quite a few. an orange-black with jaggedy wings, or its white rim is an illusion of jaggedness. painted lady? red admiral? monarch? fluttery white ones, and tiny in-the-grass ones.
conclusion. butterflies are difficult to chase and gone in split seconds. 4-dot ladybugs. several big (edible-looking) mushrooms. gophers. thunderstorms. centipedes.
it's hot w/ dragonflies. & recipes - garlic scapes.
