Dot-tailed Whiteface

I was walking around the yard and found this female Dot-tailed Whiteface hiding in the reeds.

Harlequin Darner and Seaside Dragonlets

I retuned home after an outing and saw this Harlequin Darner in the driveway. It inspired me to go out onto the salt marsh and shoot some Seaside Dragonlets. The Seaside Dragnonlets shown below are all females.

Common Green Darner

If you look sharp in grassy fields in the early morning, you may spot a Common Green Darner. Or it may spot you first and fly away.

An unwanted guest

I took a walk through Dogtown during my lunch break and went to the north end of Babson reservoir. There were two Gray Catbirds making a fuss, which is highly unusual. I have several in the yard. They make pleasant neighbors. They have a very pleasant warbling song and their cat-like calls from the bushes are easy on the ear. So when I heard the fuss, I thought it might be an owl, which may have been an easier foe. It turned out to be a Eastern Milk Snake coiled up in the nest.

I was hoping that the snake would get the message and move along, but it was determined to enjoy being knotted up in a ball in what I presume to be the Catbirds’ nest.

How did it turn out? I don’t know. I had to get back to work.

Dragon Season is Starting to Ramp Up

We have had a cool spring so far. I have found a couple of dragons. The top image is a Mantled Baskettail. The bottom image is a Lancet Clubtail.
