White-faced Meadowhawk.

Got to the hill at 8:30 this morning, only to discover I’d forgotten my GoPro. False start! Returned at about 9 a.m., and commenced to hiking with dog. Three hawk species today (making that five species in the past two days). Also a bunch of dragonflies.

I kinda love dragonflies.
