Dragonfly On Point — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Late August,

Aging colors change
In desert wetlands
Pensive like a sharp turn.

And yet,
What persistence
Balanced as perchance?

Flying for meters
Only to go back
To the same point.

After spending time driving and sightseeing in the southeast (as COVID-19 was spiking through the area)
we made it to Richmond, VA, where we spent time with family (Jason, April, Cayden, Cayla, Audrey, and Robin).
This was our first opportunity to spend time with
our new grandchildren Cayla and Cayden.

Wildflowers near the road

Attracting bees and butterflies

Shadows from tall pines

Passing rain clouds

Scatted drops hit the ground

Ravens on the wing

All’s right in the mountains.

Common Gallinule   1 comment

Adult Common Gallinule (Sweetwater Wetlands, Tucson) — Image by kenne

The common gallinule (Gallinula galeata) is a bird in the family Rallidae. It was split from the common moorhen by the American Ornithologists’ Union in July 2011. It lives around well-vegetated marshes, ponds, canals, and other wetlands in the Americas. The species is not found in the polar regions or many tropical rainforests. Elsewhere, the common gallinule is likely the most commonly seen rail species in much of North America, except for the American coot in some regions. — Wikipedia

Come slowly Eden
Lips unused to thee —
Bashful sip thy jasmines —
As the fainting bee
