The creek at dusk is the place to be
after a triple-digit summer day.
These mystery birds
were either having fun or fighting each other,
zipping through the air above the creek
dancing together in midair
then landing for a few seconds.
They were so busy,
it's a miracle I captured any of these images,
but this one was a wonderful surprise.
Today I'm giving thanks to the birds for doing their part to keep us mosquito- and gnat-free!
