In the spring and summer when you’re out birding in a woods, with every tree fully leafed out, you have to stay alert for any movement at all if you want to see birds. Sometimes you get to view other creatures, like this lovely Ebony Jewelwing damselfly. It landed about 10 feet from me in a patch of light that illuminated a few leaves. Fortunately, I was already standing still. I used my zoom lens to get this up close view of this beauty.
I saw and heard some wonderful birds. But this beauty earned the title of Photo of the Week.
Writer, marketer, columnist, author, photographer, birder, walker, hiker, husband, father, grandfather, brother, son, township trustee, converted Anabaptist, community activist, my life is crammed with all things people and nature and wonder. My late father gave me this penchant for giving and getting the most out of life, my late mother the courtesy, kindness, and creativity to see the joy in life. They both taught me to cherish the people I am with. I try and fail and try again.

What a steady hand you’ve been blessed with. How does one go about knowing the names of all the bugs?
Point of interest: a friend of mine in Columbus spotted a Golden Pheasant in his back yard the other day.
Have a good/happy 4th Cuz.
Thanks, Greg. How do I know the names? I ask those who know or I look them up in really good reference books.
Any birds like a Golden Pheasant seen in OH are escaped exotics.
Have a great Fourth of July, too.
I was in Camp Hebron this past weekend.. and we saw a myriad of these beauties plus many other colorful relatives, buzzing around the lake. Ah, the beauty.
Indeed, ah the beauty. Thanks for leaving a comment, Robert.
