  1. A yellowthroat in the jewelweed. What a lovely image — of course, it would be even better in September, when I could imagine the little bandito popping the turgid pods.

    Speaking of which, this post has some video of my niece and nephew popping jewelweed pods. It doesn’t get much better than this.
