Visitors to the garden.

I'm housesitting this week and have been enjoying sitting in the garden in the evenings after work. Brought my long lens with me exactly in the hopes of capturing some of the critters who don't like humans to get too close. These are my three favorite shots.

Bumblebee on a snapdragon


Common whitetail dragonfly


Swallowtail butterfly - In the excitement of the moment of seeing this butterfly land within the reach of my lens, I forgot to check the aperture before I snapped the shot. It was pretty blown out but through the magic of photoshop, I was able to redeem it. I think it looks rather ethereal.

My photo and video from the Bernie Sanders event in Denver tonight.

I got there about two hours early to get a good seat. Ended up eight rows back, center-left.



I got one short video clip of his speech before my camera battery died. So here's Bernie, talking about the decline of the middle class wages despite increased worker productivity.



So freaking inspiring to hear a political candidate talk about real issues affecting real people! He ranged from gender wage equity, to reinstating Glass-Steagal, to explaining the TPP (in easy-to-understand language), to the climate denial all around us - going so far in praising Pope's encyclical on climate as to refer to Francis as "a great man of God." Really a remarkable event.
