It’s time for camp, as in Camp to Belong Massachusetts, a summer camp for brothers and sisters experiencing foster care and separated from each other. As many longtime volunteers at camp will tell you, it’s one of my favorite weeks of the year. A lot of great people, counselors, staff and campers alike, come together to reunite siblings and build some lifelong memories that many of us get to take for granted. It’s a short week, but we go nonstop pretty much when the campers arrive, so I thought the patron insect saint of business – the bumblebee – would be an appropriate send off for myself (if not the weekend, may yours be restful if rest is your medicine). I should still have scheduled posts coming, but I may not respond to any comments for a while. I’ll do my best; see you soon.

All the very best – great work you’re doing.
Love the bumblebee photo very much.
Thank you, Lorna! It’s going to be sad to see the bees go; we’re getting a little hot spell here, quite amenable to bug life, so I’m hoping to get some more photo sessions in before it’s just fallen leaves and whispers of summers.
“Just fallen leaves and whispers of summer” – love that!
Good luck with the bugs.
Have a great time! Great photo!
Thanks, Victor. Camp was great, and I even snuck in a couple hours of bug shooting before the kids arrived (no time afterwards!). I hope to share some of those photos soon!
