It’s a little spooky photographing a sunflower, because bees are fans too. I managed this portrait and a couple of others. The bees hummed, but I was not stung.

Vetch is a legume that provides fodder for deer and farm animals. Its purple flowers cover part of our meadow where deer frequently feed.
Rain is falling, hard.
Effie has a way of napping in her chair, through rain and almost everything else.
Paladin seeks cover under the bed.
The pelicans are a beautiful sight on the pond. We don’t consider them competitors, and I suspect they don’t think of us at all. My husband took this photo.
My husband and I headed for the pond immediately after dinner last night to fish for trout. Rain was falling, but trout were leaping, and six came home in our ice chest. I caught five, the legal limit, 9-1/2″ – 11-1/2″, and my husband caught one. I was able to fish more continually because he unhooked the fish I caught and did the gutting and bagging, enabling me to keep casting, and, miraculously, catching and landing. We caught our six trout in just over an hour, and returned home wet, chilled, and triumphant.
The little sweetie is nestled next to our deck, while a mama doe intermittently naps and keeps vigil over the fawn from beneath a lilac bush on the other side of the lawn.
Sunshine, wind, and fishy aspirations. . .
My husband and I accepted the sunshine’s offer (the wind was thrown in with the deal) and we returned this morning to our favorite pond to fish for trout. I caught two trout, 8-1/2″ and 10-1/2″. Vic is cooking one of them now for his lunch. (I am very allergic to fish.)
Effie and Paladin have warmed to each other and enjoy strolling in Effieland together.
