Marsh Wren

I had the good fortune to find a small family of Marsh Wrens foraging near the edge of the cattails. I was able to get these images right away and tried for 20 minutes to get more, but was left with just these.

Flying Dragons

Sometimes I just cannot resist the temptation of trying something different. I found an area where there were some Common Green Darners flying into the breeze. Throwing caution to the wind, I decided to try shooting a few.

This shot is interesting. I got two as this dragon started to lower its legs. Perhaps it sees something it is going to grab?

I believe that this is a Canada Darner.

Spider attack

I always like to look over the water lilies for something interesting. Last Sunday I saw a spider on a white water lily.

There was also a honey bee gathering pollen in the flower. I wasn’t the only one who noticed the bee!

The spider got the bee on its back, but then retreated. I can only guess that the bee stung it or the spider couldn’t figure out how to dispatch the bee.

The lucky bee escaped and probably had a good tale to tell her sisters back at the hive.

The spider returned to the base of the lilly.

Ipswich MA

We had a storm go through on July 23rd. It left me with a double rainbow. As nice as that was, I thought that it still needed a little more pizzazz.

I stitched together a panorama just for fun.

Later the sun was setting in the east and the colors started to really pop.

Looking to the north, this is what I saw.

Common Pondhawk

When I found this female Common Pondhawk, I was impressed. She has caught a male Meadowhawk. I shot her ten days ago. She is probably still eating it!
