I like strange buildings, and water towers are no exception. This one is along the Gatineau River and trail in Wakefield.

Aberdeen Pavilion

We met our friends for supper in Ottawa and went for a walk to get gelato, stopping at a night market of the 613flea in Aberdeen Pavilion. The building has interesting steel trusses and is in the style of Crystal Palace buildings. They have installed interesting “leak catchers” along the roof to control water inundation.

I decided to go for a bike ride in the forest today and explored the trails near Goodrich Loomis CA.

Trapped Bee

I tried to photograph the busy bumblebees at asters but they were moving so quickly that my photos are all slightly out of focus. Then I came upon this still bumblebee – easy to photograph – but only because it had been caught by a pair of predaceous ambush bugs (Phymata sp.) that were making a meal of it. I also saw a few caterpillars today, on instagram.

Cicada

A first for me, I found a cicada! It was resting on a piece of equipment (I was pulling weeds around it) and I noticed something interesting there – a cicada! Its body length is over an inch long and it is patterned black, green, and brown. It’s likely in the genus Neotibicen. I put it in my bucket lightbox for photos before moving it to the bottom of one of the trees in my yard.

Facing upstream from the riffle, I see few leaves have fallen yet and the dogwoods are still lush.
