I can't seem to bring myself to post without a photo. It's a crutch, I guess. I'm afraid what I write will be boring, so I distract you with a nice image.
Which means I need to take more photos of things besides bees. I'm starting to bore myself with all this swarm talk.
(There's a swarm I could get in the morning, but I don't want to get up early and I'm too busy later, so I'm passing it on to Hogan's Hives.
Then there's the swarm that was picked up on the 16th Street Mall today. I haven't seen one on the ground like that before.)
See? I could go on and on. Blah blah blah swarm blah blah blah.
The photo above is from summer camp a very long time ago. Camp Manito-Wish YMCA in northern Wisconsin. My mom went there, too. It's a pretty awesome camp (still). Emphasis on long canoe trips and backpacking trips. I'm a little jealous of young me, and I want to go back and do it again, only this time I won't eat the poison ivy that's lurking in the wintergreen patch.
