Summer winding down and heating up.

  This morning after work I photographed this Bonaparte's Gull enjoying breakfast in the warm water outflow of the Erie power plant.  

  When I got home I rescued this cicada that couldn't get out of the 5-gallon bucket that he landed in.  It was the classic story...guy finds cicada in distress, guy rescues cicada, guy throws cicada in the air to set it free,  House Sparrow watching from the wire grabs cicada in flight and disappears in the sycamore tree.

Getting misty-eyed
   The Imperial Moth caterpillars that I've been raising are progressing nicely. Most of them are bulking up on Sycamore leaves.

    Only one prefers Maple leaves.
The Maple kind?
