I'm Thankful For...

Well... many things!
Of the manifold works of God abundantly displayed here in mountainous Pennsylvania...

... I'm even thankful for winter crane flies dancing in shafts of sunlight in the forest.

This evening I watched the flashes from the sunlit wings of winter crane flies as they swarmed in the beams of sunlight that filtered through the trees.

 I didn't get a close-up photo of the dancing flies, but they probably looked similar to this...
  Here is a photo looking directly up into a swarm of winter crane flies.

Here is a series of photos of an admittedly small swarm of winter crane flies dancing in the sunlight....

... between the laurel bush in the foreground, and a white pine branch and white oak trunk in the background.  Enjoy!

The Old Book says,
 "Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun." Ec.11:7

Happy Thanksgiving!
