Never pass up an opportunity to create some art

I was shooting by a swamp last Saturday. I saw a Northern Black Water Snake swimming by.

It swam off to my left about 30 feet away and I didn’t think much of it.

That is until a few minutes passed by and I saw it about eight feet from my feet.

It came in a little closer.

We watched each other for a little while and then off it went. Never pass up an opportunity to create some art.

Common Yellowthroat

I can go years without getting a good shot of the bandit. Last Saturday I found a location where three males were chasing each other around. I suspect that there was a female involved, but I didn’t see one. I stayed around for about forty-five minutes and then left them to their games.

They were very disinterested in my presence. A couple of times they buzzed past me close enough that I could feel their breeze. I am not sure which one claimed the title Cock-of-the-Rock.
Be sure to visit Wild Bird Wednesday this week!

Aurora Damselfly

My best guess on this is that this is an Aurora Damsel fly that has recently emerged.

Mayapple

So named because it blooms in may with an apple-like blossom.
