Photo Walks with Mike Hannisian - Saturday, July 6th, 2013

The weather for this week's Saturday Photo Walk was clear and warm. Given the time of year and weather, the photo subjects were rather predictable. These included Forster's Terns lined up on the railing on the south side of Bunker Pond and a Gadwall showing off his white speculum patch. But the real news this week was the number of dragonflies present. Most common among these were Blue Dasher, Four-spotted Pennant, and Needham's Skimmer. If you are interested in learning more about dragonflies and damselflies, keep in mind that next Saturday (July 13) Mike Crewe will be leading a dragonfly workshop. Contact CMBO for the details.
