Picture of the Day

February 5, 2014

I think I figured out why Miso sleeps so much. It's like
she's a spring being slowly wound up. I watched her this
evening lying Sphinx-like in the grass, merely observing.
Suddenly she sprang straight up, fully extended twisting
180 mid-air. She stuck her landing and came to me with
a gift gently clenched between sharp teeth. I just barely
touched her cheek and she released the curled-up dragonfly.
It straightened out and zipped off unharmed. Miso yawned.
