Surprise


My neighbor has a sizeable raspberry patch in his yard. A raspberry patch he waters all summer. He and I have an arrangement - he grows the berries, I make the jam and everybody's happy.  Mackinac Island raspberries are delicious, by the way.

Yesterday I was over at his house, elbow deep in the bushes and I came across this little fellow. As I picked, I watched him climb up the stem, out onto the leaf, and then hang in the "J" shape. Such a nice surprise - so much nicer than the wasps hanging out in the raspberry patch. (Apparently they've decided raspberries make a nice mid-afternoon snack.) I don't mind sharing with the monarchs, but wasps aren't my favorite. Luckily, I was careful and I didn't get stung...
