Yesterday I could feel it happening. The sunset is getting earlier, the algae is in full bloom and the nights have cooled down just a few degrees. Summer is still hanging on and we may even get a few sweltering days but I can feel fall just around the corner. Zeroimage pinhole camera and Kodak Film.
The ten-lined June beetle (Polyphylla decemlineata), also known as the watermelon beetle, is a scarab beetle, living in the western United States and Canada. The adults are attracted to light and feed on foliage. They can make a hissing sound when touched or otherwise disturbed, which can resemble the hissing of a bat.

A nice quiet view to start the week. Looking into the pacific ocean on a quiet morning.
Calm water and a funky sky hours before a major storm blew through. Rain and wind all night had us holding onto the tent poles to prevent a collapse. A little vinegar in the stew makes it just a bit more flavorful. Angmagssalik fjord, Greenland.
