un peu capoté…

my life in pictures

So, I’ve shared pictures of deer, eagles, loons, hawks (or falcons – I’m not good at identifying birds), whiskey jacks and gophers in the Cariboo. In addition to the wildlife, there are lots of bugs. I didn’t get pictures of the pesky mosquitos, but I can assure you that they were there. In fact, my left foot alone can attest to that with the 10 bites on it.

But there were cool bugs too. Lindsay asked me to take pictures of dragonflies. I obliged, but realized that dragonflies are fast – and they don’t rest often. Here’s what I got:

I also got shots of damselflies. That was easier, since they do rest more often.

I even got a picture of a meadow hawk, which Jeff assures me counts as a dragonfly. This one stopped and hung out while we were having ice cream.
