This speedy fellow was in my path on my way to camp. In fact, it seemed as though he (she?) and his entire extended family was out for a morning stroll - I think it must have been the night time rains that drew them out. Whatever the case, I luckily had my camera and snapped this shot!

Everyday is nature day at Step into Summer Camp! I can't remember who found this lady bug (who is missing most of one wing) but the kids were fascinated by her. They were fascinated by almost anything that moved - I guess that's what happens when you're 4. Do broken lady bugs still bring you luck?
Nothing like a bachelorette party at Foxwoods to...well, I'm not really sure what I can divulge, let's just say a good time was had by both brides. Bethany liked this picture of her (taken at the Hard Rock Cafe at the beginning of the evening) and so did I. Besides, there's nothing incriminating in it, and that's a good thing, right?
Took this as the Boston Pride parade finished up. It was sort of a rainy gloomy day, but that didn't put a damper on the festivities. I'm not in love with this shot, but I like how Kings Chapel is in the background - a location that has likely seen many historical events and changes during its 250 year history!

This was the 25th anniversay of the Scooper Bowl - an all you can eat ice cream event to benefit the Jimmy Fund. I recruited my brother and two others to join me and we managed to plow our way through quite a bit of ice cream (as evidenced by the cups we went through) before feeling as though we were going to die. As my brother Christopher put it "one could turn diabetic in an afternoon at this event!"
I went to Amherst College with Becca for her 5th Reunion. I took this picture as we went down to the baseball field to watch the old geysers play a game against one another. If you're ever around the Amherst campus, I suggest you take a walk around - it's beautiful!
Had to get way down on the ground to capture this shot of the catepillar (centepede, millepede?). It had some great colorful markings on it's back, which can barely be seen from this angle. Hopefully no one stepped on this little guy after I was done with him!

I had seen this little boy a few times around Provincetown - and when I finally ran into him (and his barely visable purple mowhak) I asked to take his picture. I think he was tired, and had maybe been crying, but he smiled moments afterward as the girl with him offered him a hug, kiss and a tickle!
