It’s nearly that time again… time for the local county fair, when the very toughest decisions are those made at the food stalls in the midway. What will it be… Dynamite onion? Fried pickles? Corn dog? French fries? No? How about a fried sweet of some sort… like maybe a Snickers bar, or a chunk of fried cheesecake? That’s okay, that’s okay… take your time. You have all the time in the world. I’ll get your friends order while you make your decision… now how about you, Miss – do you know what you want?

I always enjoy seeing the new critter additions in the spring and summer, though I haven’t been out to see as many this year and last due to the pandemic. This was taken at the nearby aquatic garden center, which is a huge magnet for birds of all kinds due to all of the protected ponds and wetlands that they have on the grounds.

This image always reminds me of sweltering hot summers in Washington, DC, even though it was shot during the bracing spring days of mid-April. It just has that color and atmosphere to it that evokes heat in a big way. As I recall, this image was actually taken in temperatures around the mid-30s, on a still morning that just felt utterly frigid.
