Conspicuously Everywhere

Common Whitetail, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 22 July 2017.

Common Whitetail.

They show up in deep summer. They enliven the landscape. They catch the attention of the man who’s usually obsessed with counting birds. I refer, of course, to dragonflies, butterflies, and the like—colorful, conspicuous flying insects.

Chestnut-sided Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 22 July 2017.

Chestnut-sided Warbler.

This past week has been fairly rich in Monarchs. Very rich in dragonflies, including Halloween Pennant, Black Saddlebags, Common Whitetail.

The wild birds, meantime, are distracted still by feeding all their youngsters. They’re inconspicuously everywhere.
