About Today’s Photo:

The bug bane in our ornamental garden is in full and very fragrant bloom. I’m not sure why they call it bug “bane” as the bugs sure do seem to like it. There were a good dozen bald faced hornets enjoying the nectar yesterday along with various flies and a bee or two.

As we motored through the cut into The Gut at Grande Isle the other afternoon, I managed to catch a shot of this osprey enjoying a midday meal on one of the navigational markers. It didn’t seem to be too bothered by our passage as it munched away on its catch!

About Today’s Photo:

Robin and some friends & I took a bit of a bushwack hike up to the top of Bald Hill here in Huntington yesterday. Bald Hill is one of my favorite places—there are no real trails to the top so it requires a bit of navigation to get to, but it offers one of the best views of the Hump from anywhere being right smack-dab next to it. It also offers excellent skiing in the winter, so those who are willing to “earn their turns” by climbing first are amply rewarded!
