Mid-Summer Critters



A Wood Duck hen takes her little family on an evening feeding cruise.

 Mid-Summer is a delightful time to be in the fields, forest, & wetlands barring biting insects, heat, humidity, and poisonous snakes.


Mating Dragonflies utilize submerged vegetation as a resting place appearing as if they are standing on the water.


A Whitetail Fawn wrinkles its nose while posing nicely for its portrait.

Soon the cool autumn breezes will begin blowing ushering in a new season with new opportunities but for now I am very contented to enjoy the beauty that mid-summer blesses us with.

I LOVE the dragonflies. As I stand and fly fish the streams out here, it's so much fun to watch the dragonflies dance along the waters and rocks, they really do amuse me. The Fawn is absolutely beautiful! Brilliant photos!! =)

The little fawn is so precious, and your mating Dragonflies look huge. Our fawns are still in hiding, but different neighbors have spotted a couple of sets of twins and soon the parents will bring them about. Have a wonderful week~
