The other morning while observing the Red-shouldered Hawk nest...which by the way, if all goes well, a first egg should hatch around 9 days from now... I saw this female Whitetail Skimmer. In the tiny pond across the lane, was the Green Frog, making it's charming frog sounds, and along the way, I glimpsed tiny Coral Bell blossoms as well as my first to bloom Oakleaf Hydrangea blossom. I am not positive, but I think that the bird pair were possibly Brown-headed Cowbirds.
The female Banned Pennant Dragonfly...;) I must smile. We had gone to a Memorial Day ceremony at one of the larger cemeteries in Louisville. With the use of my trusty 70/300 lens, I was panning the sky, as I had heard a Red-shouldered Hawk in the area. I saw something moving a little closer and snapped whatever it was and it turned out to be this tiny dragonfly, which is, I believe a female Banned Pennant, just had to add it in this post too, as well as I liked the colours going on with this patch of fungi. Enjoy your day wherever you may be, and stay safe always~
