August 18. Not a sketch

dll-goldenrod-small Today was a long work day. When I got home I decided to wander around the yard taking some reference photos of whatever critters I could find. My summer is measured by spider varieties. We are now wholly in the Season of the Daddy Long-legs. They are everywhere. Young orange ones, and rather older ones that look cranky. I hung out with this fellow in the goldenrod for a while. A nice place to recover from the news headlines.
