More Wildlife of The Vermilon River.

 You might have noticed that I did not post last week.I intended to, but my computer loaded with infections required a complete clean up. Interestingly enough the fellow who performed the clean up told me that my computer came prepacked with virus' (which negate the security) because the chips are made in China. I'll let you think about that. Opposite: White water. I suggest you use the slide show as it's a long post.
I've completed another video which is at Video.




Clear-winged Damselfly.

 This sequence occurred so quickly that I almost missed it. This skipper was resting on a leave and was suddenly joined by another. Is this true love?


A post to: I'd Rather B BirdinOur World Tuesday, and WBW.

  5. the common yellowthroat really takes my eye, and the many varieties of damselfly you get to see. Quite disapointing the pre-packed viral infections! Glad you're on the mend again...always enjoy your blog posts Gary

  6. Each time I see your grackle, it reminds me so much of our crow - beak and eyes in particular. And the catbird - odd name - fascinates me. It seems to have a large fanned tail that dominates its body. Interesting photos!

  10. I love how the sunlight shines of the yellowthroat!!
    Now I have a question for you...how can you tell the difference between a damselfly and dragonfly?!! I am continually amazed with those that do know.

  16. Beautiful birds and flowers! I look forward to the return of the warblers this fall. My computer has been freezing up and it is so frustrating. No viruses that I could detect. I found a bad USB hub driver and unplugged it and now the computer is more stable.

  32. Your pictures always make me back up several times to look again and think about how lovely they are. Today your first words caused me to back up and think too (but not such beautiful thoughts). Computers, you can't live with them and you can't live without them! Be back later for the slide show.
