Dragon Friday

Late July and the Dragons do fly. Yes, summer is speeding along and when the birds go a bit silent this time of year the dragonflies take to the sky.

A handful of photos of some of the locals.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Keep healthy and stay safe.

Female Yellowthroat

We spotted this Female Common Yellowthroat quickly moving in and out of the bushes while on a morning walk. While we most often see the males perched out in the open singing we very rarely have seen the female out in the open like this. She only stayed for a minute or two then flew off into a marshy area several hundred yards away.

Just passing through

Just passing through might be a bit of an understatement. While just getting ready to doze off we heard a bit of commotion just outside our campsite and just across a small creek this male moose came passing though. He moved along quickly and we hardly had time to snap a photo yet along admire him. Just passing through indeed.

 

Happy Friday and wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Summer Days

While spending time ogling the wildflower patches in front of us we almost forgot to turn around and breathe in the pure cloudless sky and wonderful mountain ridge behind us.

An evening storm passes by bringing thunder but no rain on the mountain peak just across the way.

A classic summer cumulus just seemed to hang over this rock formation from early afternoon until evening.

The setting sun still shining out the mountains ever so close but still far away.

Summer days seem so few.
