The hummingbirds are back. During our evening happy hour ritual on the deck, we were watching two eagles fight/play and chase each other out of the sky into the trees on the other side of the gorge and a flashy looking male ruby throated buzzed right up in our faces at the feeder. The largest bird and the smallest bird on display at the same instant.
I had my binoculars out and was looking into the treetops at the pollinating insects cruising the blooms. Most trees have fairly intricate blooms that get totally ignored by humans, but the insects know all about them. The prize goes to one of the wild cherry trees, though, with several big black butterflies cruising its canopy. All I ask is that they slow down for just a second so I can identify them, which they didn't but I'm thinking black swallowtail for now.
Anyway, I'm having a tough time working up much outrage with everythingbeing so nice. I'll just leave you with some amusment:

Do you hear that the NHL is considering banning fighting in ice hockey? That’s the only way to make ice hockey less popular than it is now. Hockey without fights is like NASCAR without mullets... Ferguson
And lastly, one of my favorite cartoonists is back in the political arena...
