When Hubs and I talked to Mom and Dad this morning, I had planned to go out hunting for dragonflies to photograph today. Well, one thing led to another and before you know it, I was out of time for dragon-hunting. However, Monsieur Bleu had no such constraints and showed up outside the nest box with this very large dragon. I would have loved to see how he managed to feed it to his nestlings since they are still very small, but I guess it all worked out. Well, not for the dragon, of course.
And if I was really good, I'd be able to tell you what kind of dragon this was...turns out I'm not that good.
Four other photos starting HERE with the most amazing fly - followed by two more bluebird pics and a small sweat bee facing off against an even smaller spider mite. It was a surprisingly good photo day.
MIL is here now and Hubs is cooking dinner. We'll enjoy a nice visit before taking her back to the home. She's a bit more confused today, but that's the nature of the disease... good days and not-so-good days.
Tomorrow we honor the men and women who've given their lives in defense of our country. Somehow, the day has become all about barbecues and the kick-off of summer, but I think it's appropriate to remember what the day is really about.
Be well, Blippers.
PS: And in Wren news... the second nest how has six tiny brown eggs. Mama wasn't on the nest when I checked it, so I'm guessing there is still one more egg to be laid. Good grief. If they all hatch, we'll have 13-14 hungry little wren babies in a few weeks. Pity the insects.
