Humming Along

My trip is humming along. I’m trying to get some photos, but the heat wave has inhibited me. I managed to stand the relentless sun a couple days ago at Wells State Park in Sturbridge, MA. I accidentally walked through a bog, and the mosquitoes were horrible on the trails, but I found some open areas with butterflies — and a hummingbird clearwing (obviously) —tiger beetles, and dragonflies. Managed not to throw my back out either, which was a nice bonus. :)

[Also just wanted to note that I edited this with iPhoto on the iPad, not sure that helped a less than perfect photo, but hopefully it looks okay on your screen where or whatever that might be.]
