I’m saving conference memories until I can concentrate. I made it home to find that we had visitors and more coming. That’s fun!
Luckily I had a few minutes free to finish out the Pollinator BioBlitz. I hadn’t figured I’d see anything new, but I was happy to be surprised! I saw a new dragonfly, for one. It’s all black.
Plus I saw way more butterflies than I expected, including one I never got to hold still. I’m not sure which of the ones that look purple when they fly it is, it someone will correct it.
Plus, I saw a snout butterfly holding still, finally, and dozens of fiery skippers. And one more fritillary.
I was even more satisfied to finally get a clear photo of the bee fly who is always around the asters. Woo!
Well visitors are here. More later!
