Bring Me Rain

Last night we were sitting on the deck talking, when Laurie got up and said what’s this? I pulled out my flashlight and it was a wolf spider with a bunch of baby wolf spiders clinging to her back. I gave Laurie the flashlight and grabbed my camera, which I had on the table. The spider seemed to be attracted to the light and posed while I photographed her.

Our weeping lavender red bud was nicely backlit against the gazing ball for a moment when the sun peeked out between the clouds. Otherwise, the light was pretty dull tonight as dry thunderheads blew in from the west.
