During my surveillance of the Blue Jay chicks fluttering and flapping around my yard, I just happened to look up at my Toba Hawthorne and spotted a golden glow, that had been missing from our yard during the recent mosquito season.
Slender body, all clad in gold,
gossamer wings, no longer cold,
resting there in all her beauty
setting up to do her duty.
Nature’s engineering marvel,
much prettier, now not larval,
purpose made, you can not beat her,
pretty golden Skeeter Eater.
