A sweetly warm day, with insects coming back around to be more lively.  A docked pair of dragonflies suspend themselves over a puddle in #2 Pasture.  Polka Dot Beetles also continue appreciating the nice weather.  Days pass during which I don’t see the Red-winged Grasshoppers and I’m sure they’ve all died, but then their clicking will be everywhere and they will be putting on a colorful show out ahead of me as I walk the miles of a day doing rounds.  Today that distinctive snapping sound of theirs drew me to the only one out on the wing, and I wonder again how much longer they’ll be part of the scene.
