Well, after such an eventful critter catching day yesterday, I must say I was a bit disappointed that my quarter of a red apple attracted no one but a handful of small ants to the trap. I think a peanut or almond butter smear on it might bring some company. Just when I thought the morning would remain uneventful, a run, a quick trip to the gym and Starbucks and back for a session on my laptop with my new book I saw something I haven't seen before on the "trail"...

Amazing things you see in a pair of running shoes, itunes on the ipod, an Italian Greyhound at your side and a trusty little camera in your pocket...

Coming back from a nice, spring run, I was nearing my house when something caught my eye. From a distance this looked like there was a canvas bag hanging in the tree. I am always on the lookout for something unique so I kept my eye on the prize. As I neared the "bag" it seemed to be moving and so I crept up into the neighbor's front yard to get a better look.

WOW! There must be a thousand bees there. They were diving in and buzzing out and swarming. It was cool because of the overnight rain so they were huddled in together to keep warm and didn't seem to mind me standing there at all. I wonder what the homeowner thought if they saw me through the window snapping pics of her front yard?
