It didn’t seem to be in any hurry, but then again, I’m not sure what its “hurried flight” looks like, or if it even has one. After watching it for several minutes, I realized this winged wonder did have a destination, however. The critter zoomed in on a single dandelion growing near the edge our fence. How did it see it?
