Saving Earthworms

That's not to say that we have an earthworm collection. For some reason, we come across a lot of earthworms squirming on the hot pavement. There's a place down the street from our house that we call "earthworm crossing". Whenever we see one that is alive, we save it by putting it into cooler soil.

On the way home from the hardware store today and after my dragonfly experience, I saw this one. I took its picture then picked it up and moved it. I had to carry it quite a distance to find cooler digs and it was mighty slimy. I couldn't take any more pictures. Not even one of a dragonfly in the right spot.
