Summer Schedule

It's official: as of today, my summer schedule has kicked in.

Work for several hours at the computer, then walk and shoot for a couple, and then work again. If time agrees, take one more stroll.

At the height of Odonate emergence, there is so much to see. Take the Blue Corporals, for example: some begin emergence; others lengthen wings and take first flight; along the shore tenerals sun themselves; some males have already darkened to their deep black-blue; pairs mate; females deposit eggs. Already the first generation has planted the second to come.

It's exhilirating -- the looking and snapping and naming.
