It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day. . .

Can't you just see Mr. Rogers hanging up his jacket, taking off his shoes, donning his cardigan sweater, and sitting down to put on his sneakers? That song ran through my head all morning yesterday, as a perfect summer morning pulled me out onto the deck with my coffee and a good book.

After a time, I put the book down and got my watering pot. The flowers and tomatoes looked a bit thirsty. My watering pot holds two gallons, and it takes six fillings to get everyone watered. (About the only thing I forgot when planning my house, was to have a water spigot on the deck. So I carry water from the bathroom--I tell myself it is good, and needed, exercise!)

After watering, I decided to take some photos of my flower "wall" around the deck. While I was doing that, I had a visitor. I hastily tried to get some photos of this fast-moving target, but didn't know until I downloaded and enlarged the pictures whether or not I had captured him (or her, as the case may be). I was delighted to find that I had, twice.

I don't know the name of this insect. Can anyone help me with that?
