A blazing close to the month of May in Maine.
From May 23rd until July 11 the sun rises at 5am or earlier. Pretty intense time to get out there for the pre-dawn show, which begins at around 4:15. But J and I both made it today.
Since it's been a while, I indulge today in a photo-rich display of today's evolution of dawn.
The floral decor is breathtaking - carpets of bluets and petal-strewn pathways. Lilacs in full bloom emitting their soul-filling scent.
I startled a deer, whose fluffed tail caught my eye as she disappeared into the woods. Mosquitos emerged from nowhere as soon as the pink glow began. I can appreciate them only insofar as they provide breakfast for the birds and frogs, who were positively deafening in their songs of the opening day.
We felt a bit voyeuristic interrupting this pair, indicators of more harumphing frogs in our future...
...also nice for dogs.
