Today, while shooting photos of Rivergreenway trail repair, an insect flew in the sleeve of my shirt and started crawling around on my back. When I reached in behind me to remove the intruder, it stung me. I cried out in pain and all the contractors working on the project stopped what they were doing and just looked at me. "Something stung me," I felt I had to explain. They hadn't noticed I was there taking pictures until I screamed.
I think it was a bee or wasp. I never saw it. Avoid using the Rivergreen way trail between Vesey Avenue and Juliette Avenue until Friday of next week when repairs should be completed.
