|Dried, recently-deceased cicada, funeral dirge provided by the droning of thousands of his cousins|
|The teeny tiny bunny I mentioned on Twitter, browsing in the shade, cowering from passing cycle commuters|
|Barrel cactus, note the late summer dried flowers and fruit around its crown|
|Not positive this is an Apache. But hot, sharp, chop chop chop sound as it sped overhead.|
|Hawk, not a sign of summer innately, but photo taken right after hawk seen splashing like a fool in irrigation water|
I really enjoyed glimpsing the hawk splashing in the irrigation water. He may have been after smaller birds, but I don't think so. In the heat of the afternoon, I think they were all just splashing around in there together, seeking a cool down. I caught him spreading his wings and rising up from the water, startlingly large in his outstretched wings, making a quick jump to the nearby grapefruit tree. zzz zzz zzzz zzz zzzz zzzz.... summer.
