Beautiful Sky, and other Cool Stuff

Greetings from the Hermit Writer. (Just two more posts from Catfish Creek)

Toasty log.

I wuv dwagon fwies

I love those clouds.

I Just liked the snags, but missed the hawk until I had the shot on my computer.

A second shot and I still didn't see the hawk on top of the snag.


  1. Beautiful summer shoots !Love that Dragon Insect:))))

  2. Red-mantled Saddlebags or Red Saddlebags (Tramea onusta)

    Very nice, Mac! I was chasing a couple of juvenile Blue Skimmers around yesterday, but they never let me get a pic.

  3. Photo # 5 reminds me of a very skinny scarecrow dancing in the breeze! Guess it's the one with the hawk? But it seems so manly! Every tree = it's own personality!

  4. Luvely dragunfly and the trees have long arm. Best, Synnöve

  5. It's me again! Upon further review, that might be a Carolina Saddlebags (Tramea carolina).

    "The end of abdomen has black dorsal spots."

    I would love to get a shot of either, of course. (For 2016.)

    1. Ha clearly love this stuff. Have a biology background, do you?

  6. The image with the two snags, the one on the right looks like some kind of giant stick insect with arms out for balance and head thrown back laughing.

  7. Great photos of the dead trees and surprise hawk. In the photo of the two trees the one on the right looks like it is dancing. :)
