    This is located about about a mile from where we live! Orchards and vinyards are just starting to blossom. Heaven!

    The one last Saturday spent the afternoon squished into the inside top of my veil. When I took my jacket off the first half of her fell to the ground about 100' from the house...the second half of her (stinger end) fell to the ground about 30' from the house. I figure the respective halves are still where they fell unless otherwise disposed of by other critters that had uses for them. I would have preferred to have shaken those two halves out in the places pictured in some of the preceding pictures (except for the one with the bears :shock:).

    ETA: The place with the giant ant mound doesn't look appealing, either!
