So far, I’ve offered mostly closeups. Birds, a tiny chipmunk, squirrels. This time it the Blackstone River. These are photos I took in June, but they’ve been sitting in my “in box” ever since. Late last night, I decided it was time to do something with them. This is summer in the Valley.
If it weren’t for the bugs — which are having a great year with the warm winter and the current heat wave — and the humidity, it would be a beautiful time of year. Between the lethal mosquitoes and COVID-19, it hasn’t been a great year in any way at all. The changes in weather are bringing exceptionally hot weather which we are warned may be “the future” for this area. Between the heat, disease and the sharks lurking off the beaches along the Cape, Summer is not a great time for people, though I hear the insects and many birds seem to find the weather pleasing.
