8/21/14 City Forest

A little warmer and more humid with a possibility of rain but still nice. Very few deer flies- maybe their season is about to be over.

We did a little bit different route today, going the other way on the rail bed.

The beaver pond water is lower and has lots of plants growing, including on the beaver lodge.

Another ragged butterfly- we see few that aren't a least a bit damaged

The old rail bed has grown quite lush with all the rain

A few other things we saw

Turned out to be a nice hike although we only met two people and no dogs there was still plenty of water for Kelley and she found lots of scents to check out.   2 hours


  1. Love your butterfly and dragonfly photos. You're very good at catching these fast insects!

    1. Thanks Linda- waiting for them to land nearby works better than trying to follow them. My 100 mm macro also allows me a little more space.
