I’m not getting out much here in isolation/lock-down/quarantine — all these words are inexact.

And is it ever a bummer! For this is a profoundly rich time of year, with life-forms a-popping up all over, just waiting to be ogled. But even in limited excursion mode lately, some of my nature jones is being met. The swallows, for instance, have returned. (Despite our best efforts even!) Here’s a Barn Swallow showing how to species distance from the Tree Swallows.
This stunning beetle wanted nothing to do with the paparazzi.
So this is what an Ailanthus bud looks like.
An Eastern Yellowjacket. Possibly a queen, for she certainly looked freshly emergent.
Northern Flicker.
Wet violet.
