It was a cool grey morning, and a great blue heron and a green heron were at the pond when I arrived, but neither were in the mood for pictures. One lone male mallard flew in, but there was no sign of the wood ducks. Even the muskrat was sleeping in, it seems.
Not to be outdone, the bugs also stepped up their game. The cool temps did keep the mosquitos in their hangers this morning, which was nice, but also made this resplendent female ebony jewelwing damselfly (Calopteryx maculata) languid enough for me to take these pictures.
Well, that’s all I’ve got for today, kids. Keep those hot tips and pics coming, and maybe I’ll feature yours the next time I come up empty with my own.
