About Me

My photo
By day I'm a propeller-head geek. I design software for electronic components for a major automotive supplier. When I'm not earning a paycheck, I enjoy playing music -- primarily jazz and classical but I dabble in other genres as well. I also compose, arrange, and play with electronic gadgets and toys. My other hobbies include photography, colored pencil drawing, genealogy, model railroading, and crosswords.

Lunch Walk 15 Aug 2014

The weather was cool and windy today. And not a lot to photograph -- I hardly heard a peep from any birds. In a sunny little meadow near the river, I spotted a few damselflies and dragonflies. Here is an American Rubyspot Damselfly and a Common Darter Dragonfly:

On the return leg, I spotted a rather large Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. It was flapping among the flowers about 10 feet off the trail and I couldn't get any closer. This is a crop, and not exactly as sharp as I would have liked. He's also not in perfect shape as it looks like his "tails" are mostly gone.
