recently around the lake

A few scenes around Lake Kittamaqundi over the past week....The tiger swallowtail above, photographed yesterday, was the first one I spotted since the heavy rains and flash flood watch earlier in the week.

Dragonhunter -- a large dragonfly
which preys on other dragonflies and large butterflies.

The boom crane has been a fixture this summer.

A green heron -- not seen at this lake often. They seem to prefer nearby Wilde Lake.

An American goldfinch feeds on coneflower seeds in the little park on Vantage Point Road.

Let's take a cue from Gracey and take it easy!
