Swan Rangers were driven to take photos of bugs, bees and flowers as wildfire smoke continued to obscure the landscape in the week ending Saturday, August 7, 2021!

While smokey skies make for red sunrises, as shown in Keith Hammer's lead photo . . .
. . . they cause others to focus on the small stuff, as Skip Via did with this Honey bee on Oregano flowers and . . .
. . . this Two-form bee on Echinacea!
Dee Blank shows us the details of Fringed grass-of-Parnassus . . .
. . . and Western anemone going to seed!
Keith quit staring at the red sun long enough to get a photo of this Lorquin’s admiral butterfly.
Pam Willison's photo of a hot turkey puffing out its feathers and panting reminds us how wildlife suffer in hot weather. Neighbors report deer standing in sprinklers and laying down in water troughs!
