One day you wash up on the beach, wet and naked. Another day you wash back out. In between, the scenery changes constantly.

A Walk Around the Neighborhood and in the Garden
Georgia, Skye and I decided to take a short walk around the neighborhood in lieu of a beach walk because it was bloody hot and humid out. Unfortunately, along the way, Skye ducked under vine, which unhitched her collar from the leash, and I had to go off and chase her while Georgia went home to wait for a call from the number on her collar. It was a relatively short chase; two streets up the hill she made the mistake of going onto someone's deck with only one way off, and I managed to corner her. On the way back, we met a young friend.
Later, Georgia caught this female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird taking a heat bath on the deck rail under the feeder.
After a while, I went out to see what kind of butterfly life was out in the garden. Zebra Swallowtails, although not as abundant as some years, are at least still fairly common.
