Pond Watch

At last we were able to to get a photograph
of the male Twelve Spotted Skimmer.

The Yellow-Sided Skimmer has found a mate.
A Blue Dasher perched on a leaf.

A Pond Hawk perched on his log.

 We did not see any Green Darners today.
But we did see lots of Common White Tails, males and females.
They are very friendly dragonflies.
We saw a few butterflies.
The Angel Wing Question Marks
are lovely butterflies.
Hackberry Emperors are common in our woods.

We watched a Yellow-billed Cuckoo.

We keep trying to get photographs of the
 Blue-gray Gnat Catcher.
Maybe next week.

What beautiful photos, Sherry. I'm amazed at what you capture. I'm sure you'll snap that Gnat Catcher another time.

A wonderful collection of dragonflies and butterflies. I love watching each one flitting around and love it when I can catch them on camera. You must have felt very satisfied.

Zdjęcia ważek śliczne, ale zauroczył mnie motyl, o skrzydełkach z zewnątrz przypominających brązowego liścia. Pozdrawiam.
Photos of dragonflies, beautiful, but I fell in love with a butterfly, with wings from the outside resembling a brown leaf. Yours.

It's amazing that you got a picture of a Yellow-billed Cuckoo! Such secretive birds. Your butterfly pictures are lovely, too.
