In local sightings, heading to work this morning, some Sandhill Cranes were in the fields along Langstaff Line, as they usually are this time of year. Ten were near the west end.
After lunch, I headed over to Reid CA for a bit of a walk. Lots of Silver-spotted Skippers are out right now, as are Giant Swallowtails and summer crescents.
I walked into the forest to check an area for Dukes' Skippers. None were there. Nearby I admired the tall oaks.
Nothing was at the "Broad-winged Skipper area" either.
Near the gate, I walked in to the shaded sedges.
I did manage to find a single worn Dukes' Skipper.
Royal River Cruisers are plentiful right now. Last evening I saw at least a dozen along the main trail through Reid.
Here are a few other scenes from my recent trip to Muskoka. I did not take many photos on the trip--just enjoyed the scenery and wildlife.
