Here I am sitting in the solarium listening to the crickets. It has just rained and the critters are out, There are fireflies, bats, tree frogs, and the crickets. I took a walk out in the yard, the smell of the rain and the sounds are a most peaceful feeling.
Now the sound of a Train whistle and the droning sound of the wheels on the tracks. We have tracks across the street, you can hear the freight and Amtrak train in the yard and in the solarium. Our sky is quiet no planes using our flightplan tonight. What a most glorious Night. Venus is bright and the Moon looks surprised at 3/4 full, probably because of no airplanes in view, although I am now beginning to hear them off in the distance. The airport is not far away. This city/county living is full of nature and man made things sharing the sky and ground. So, no photos to show for the darkness is too serene to disturb and the bats are too hard to capture with a Lens. So, I just continue to watch them fest on the mosquitoes and rejoice in their work!
