A Female American Goldfinch enjoying the Thistle on a cloudy summer afternoon.
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.
A ruffed grouse emerges from the deep grass to perch for a moment on a beautiful weathered log. It was not long before they hopped down and disappeared from sight just a quickly as they appeared.
A summer afternoon thunderstorm brews behind while the sun still shines ahead. A lovely summer day indeed.
A blue sky reflecting in the waters with a Yellow-headed Blackbird perched along the cattails. That little bit of muck growing on the pond suggests that summer is moving right along.
The wildflowers were still singing and the music was sweet as sweet can be.
A symphony of yellow and purple as color was transformed to sound this summer day.
Happy Monday and wishing you a wonderful week.
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 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.
