Beautiful And Painful
Remembering last weekend's insect exhibit, I idly wondered whether mosquito and other insect larvae were thriving in the heat and wetness.
Two miles later I head a loud buzzing behind me. Something brushed my hair. I swatted it instinctively and felt a sharp stab in the back of my head.
It took 90 minutes to walk back to the car and 10 hours for the pain to subside. But I was lucky: last week a hiker told me to watch out for rattlesnakes on this trail. Nature is beautiful, but it can be painful.
