It's kind of interesting to watch this fellow grow his antlers. A few weeks ago he just had little bumps.It looks like he has not done growing yet. So far it looks like a 3X3, but will likely be bigger. How much bigger? Stay tuned for future episodes.
The white lilacs are blooming and my friends the hummingbird moths are back. For more info see Link .
There were actually four of these today, and as they are only 3/4 of an inch long, very hard to track and keep in focus.
They have a very long tongue for getting into where the nectar is.
We must have at least 50 Tiger swallowtails around the lilacs.
My friend the hunting spider is back, and was enjoying a meal in the sun.
And of course, the horses ( and dog} are still hanging about.Other than that, all is quiet on the acreage.
Happy summer everybody. Tomorrow will be one second shorter!
