Saturday Evening Creature Feature, Purple Loosestrife

Today, it’s all about the color purple. Not the movie, but Purple Loosestrife. It’s a bit of a weed here, being introduced and all. It grows in our swamps and wet meadows. But is makes for some fun bug shots. Here are some bees.

Sometimes it is hard to find dragons on Loosestrife. The stalks are a bit floppy in the breeze. I did fid a Blue Dasher that seemed to prefer it to other perches.
