With the record low rainfall this year....There are literally no mosquitos in the air.
Therefor, scarce food supplies for these little fellas.
As such, in a most unusual occurrence, these little swallows, who are arely seen on the ground, perilously land and resort to eating a few small ants in the front yard for food.
On the flower farm we can really notice the difference in the hot dry season this year.
Like the swallows we too make adjustments. Such as drip irrigation and new, other flower varieties.
