Ebony Jewelwing

This Ebony Jewelwing (Calopteryx maculata)came to visit us on Sunday as we were working on our art projects. Neither it, nor I, were as quiet as the dragonfly Fleur-Ange photographed last week.

I just updated my wild flower page for this week. My regular wild flower walking group, Fleur-Ange, and I found 145 wild flowers in bloom during this past week. That is the high for the year so far.

Amazing you have so many flowers in bloom. That Kickxia(?) is interesting!

I was just thinking this morning that I've gotten so wrapped up in birdwatching I seem to have forgotten to look at the wildflowers. It's nice to have a reminder.

Rurality: I am sure there are more flowers out there that are blooming. There just is not enough time to look for them all. In the last few years I have found 295 different species blooming sometime in July.

RD: I have the opposite problem. I get so wrapped up with wild flowers that I sometimes forget to listen and look up for the birds.
