Dog Days

Swallows gathering. Plenty of butterflies. Even a dragonfly or two.
I do love the way birds be smart.

My neighbour says she takes her young dog up into the field behind the house. There the dog do romp around the grasses chasing the flies and insects that she do kick up. Swallows are flying low over the field and as the young girl-dog do chase one of them (who leads her around the field on an exhausting fruitless hunt)... the rest of the swallows do follow on behind them... snapping up the midges and flies what young dog do disturb in her running.

That's what I call the tail wagging the dog.
