Late Afternoon Stuff

I finally caught up with a Flag-tailed Spinyleg dragonfly late this afternoon.  They are regular at McKeough CA Dam every summer, but this was the first one this year.  It has not been a banner year for dragonflies!

Nearby were a few Eastern Tailed-Blue butterflies on a log.

A fresh crop of Pearl Crescents are emerging. Had one in the yard yesterday-rather uncommon for the yard.

Nothing much to report out at Stewart Wetland.  A Great Egret showed up yesterday, so there is till hope for a Snowy Egret or Little Blue Heron.  A couple of Greater Yellowlegs were new in the shorebird department today.

  1. Another great post Blake. Not sure what you are up to this weekend but if you decide to come to Pelee there was a Pipevine Swallowtail today at Sanctuary.
