Nocturnal Delights

A crazy June bug is doing pirouettes around my porch light. I watch it for a while and listen to its buzz, then go indoors and turn out the light to release the hapless insect from its thrall to the artificial moon.

Then some other bug keeps visiting my open window. Though I hear it bump the screen I can't see it in the darkness that presses against my lit room, but Portia sees it, and she swats the screen trying to catch the bug. The sound of cat claws catching only fly screen mingles with the chirping of crickets. I can't say how much I'm enjoying the mild evenings, after so many chilly nights. I can't wait for the next full moon.
