Everyone’s happy … almost

Deer are happy:

Recent burns give them fresh plant to feed on.

Can you see the deer?

Mosquitoes are happy:

Recently formed shallow pools form perfect breeding ground for their larvae. Even better, gambuzia (i.e., pup-sized mosquito larvae eating fish) were completed depleted from the deep drought, not to return until a deeper and more contiguous water column gives them a conduit by which to repopulate the swamp.

Until then, expect mosquitoes to multiply by the millions.

Trust me, there’s quite a few mosquitoes in this photo (and on the photographer)

Okay, I’ll admit:

If you’re out there slapping at ’em, you’re probably not all that happy.
