Awakenings from brian plonka on Vimeo.

WILDLIFE WATCHING — It will be months before another crop of aphids tries to take over our gardens, orchards and landscaping while nourishing birds and other creatures.

But Brian Plonka, former S-R photographer turned freelance cinematographer, created this short, mesmerizing feature during an aphid hatch around Hauser Lake that makes me long for the day the bugs will return.
