Live Music Back in Downtown Port Townsend with the Unexpected Brass Band

Time has flown by since I took these photos, at the end of May. This is the Unexpected Brass Band at Pope Marine Plaza here in Port Townsend. They put on such a great show and had such a fun energy about them as they performed. The crowd was thrilled to be there for a live concert. It was the first event photography I had done in over a year. I'm over the moon that Concert on the Dock is starting next month. I love photographing the summer concerts and this year they will be starting in August thru the first week in September.

Coffee with a Fascinating Cankerworm

Morning coffee on the porch. Grateful for the time to watch the magical acrobatics of what I think is a cankerworm.

The lifeline thread it was suspended by invisible to my imperfect vision.

The wind moves the invisible silk and spins the tiny creature like a Coast Guard rescue bucket out of control.

I watch as it finally lowers itself, nearly touching the ground but then like a cat touching water with its paws, retracts and lifts up back to the sky.

Back to the tree foliage to gorge as it prepares to move from a spring larvae to becoming a moth, not limited to floating randomly but to winged flight.
