Fat grasshoppers and noisy crickets. Bumblebees built for cooler weather. Darting moths stirred up by our presence. Palm Warblers absent the rufus polls of springtime, but their tails as derrick-like as ever. A falcon shoots by, too quick for us. We curse the god-damned helicopters, a constant curse over the island.And a few days later on the flank of the Harbor Hill Moraine. There was just a scurrying bird in here, probably a Common Yellow-throat, since that’s their style.And one more patch, in the Native Flora Garden, which is stellar right now, above and below.
