I did manage to get out to The Field for a couple of hours yesterday, but the heat index was up around 104 degrees, so needless to say, I did not last long. I did see a few of our summer birds including my favorite, the Blue Grosbeak, and an Osprey fishing the creek.
I mostly got caught up in photographing the dragonflies, which were numerous in the hot weather. They are so varied and colorful, it is always interesting to photograph them. Enjoy the pictures below. I hope to get back on a more regular beat here as soon as this moving mess is done---
