It must be the end of the season for the dragonflies seemed to be larger than four months ago. They were also not so active at Colonial Lake, perfect for taking some close shots of them.
I walked around Colonial Lake near home yesterday and took pictures of the following flowers. I am guessing the names of the first two, so please feel free to correct me if you happen to recognize them with their proper names.
Recently I encountered a new bird, for me anyway, the Common Yellowthroat, a small warbler with a Lone Ranger black mask, a white head top, and a very yellow throat.
This House Sparrow was preening itself one morning, and looked down curiously at a photographer.
Meanwhile, a female Mallard took off from Colonial Lake.
A Common Grackle laughed at the scene.
Have a great weekend!
