Sapphire and Sunshine

Shumway Hill Road 2:00pm 9/17/2019 

Wild neighbors come in a great variety of sizes and shapes.

Driving up Shumway Hill for a Communion visit this afternoon my attention was captured by the way that the sky, blue as sapphire was complimented ever so sharply by fields of goldenrod that seemed to me like golden-yellow sunbeams bursting up from the earth. And a great many insects were buzzing about, dancing on the wing, to share in the abundance of this wild space! 

This wide open field under open skies became as a great banquet hall for butterflies, moths, bees, flies and beetles in a way that would surely be the delight of any entomologist.
