In September of 2008, I was taking a mid-day stroll along one of the back trails at the Greenbank Farm on Whidbey Island. Wild blackberry vines were in full bloom - and that's where I caught this little guy, so very busy! Head and legs spattered with pollen, bobbing lazily from one flower to the next as though I didn't exist. Nary a care in the world. My hero.
