This weekend involved a surprise sight at my in-laws' and lots of beautiful dragonflies at the water features in Green-wood Cemetery, allowing me to add a few more bird, invert, and herps to my list.
Enjoy the sights!
|There were in that same area a lot of fledged mourning doves following their parents around.|
|Just so happened to have noticed that this and another Canada Goose were strolling casually past the grave for the Bird family!|
|Another indigo bunting going through a molt- you can see those sneaky blue feathers!|
|A great egret perched up on a tree near the Crescent Water .here is usually a little module in the center of the water that the egrets perch on, but it has been removed. A tree was the next best perch, I suppose.|
|A little bullfrog in the Dell Water. If you walk along the Dell Water, all you hear are little squeaks, as these frogs jump at any glimpse of a shadow.|
|I saw no woodchucks, but I saw evidence of them!|
|I was able to identify this dragonfly as a calico pennant.|
|How gorgeous are you?! I love dragonflies, they are such amazing little creatures.|
|Fairly sure this is a female twelve-spotted skimmer. A lot of the dragonflies were actively depositing their eggs into both the Crescent and Dell Waters.|
|This is the male twelve-spotted skimmer, what a stunner!|
