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.
