Photo of the day

Great In Focus gallery of World Cup images.  So many good ones, but given my fear of insects– even small ones– I loved this series showing James Rodriguez making a penalty kick even while being molested by a massive flying insect.  That would have made me miss.  Also, I have taken to calling my son, Evan James, Evan Ha-mes.

A combination of pictures shows a giant insect flying toward, and landing on Colombia’s midfielder James Rodriguez, after he scored from the penalty spot — and then later on a photographer’s seat, during the quarter-final football match between Brazil and Colombia at the Castelao Stadium in Fortaleza on July 4, 2014. (Fabrice Coffrini/AFP/Getty Images)

    At least the grasshopper didn’t bite Rodriguez’s ear off.
