What is this mysterious glowing object?  (I did not manipulate this photo in any way other than to crop it) Answer Monday!

By the way, Lynn asked if we could do a posting on how to make our landscapes more wildlife friendly.  We’re doing even better than a posting – we’re doing a whole week’s worth of blogs on the topic!  Thanks for the suggestion – and the rest of you feel free to suggest topics as well.

  1. Ed and Wes seem pretty sure, but just in case it turns out not to be an upskirt of a morning glory, I’m going to guess mealy bugs on a pistil.
