It’s a new week…The first of summer.

I find myself spending more of my time outside than I am used to. Yes, it’s hot out…And dry. It almost reminds me of my summer in south Texas back in the early 1970’s. Unusually dry heat for Southeast Texas at this time of the year.

Walking the trail I’ve laid out around the backyard and through the woods then along the bayou I am kept company by dragonflies. At times there are squadrons of thousand or more in the sir patrolling my path…There are a number of different species fly around these parts. I haven’t spent time yet trying to classify these from the pictures yet.

My only other regular companion is our dog Copper. Even she doesn’t enjoy the heat though, and tends to peel off and join her sister under the house after the first or second lap around the yard. It’s not like the winter walks I was taking where both dogs stayed with me for the entire session…Oh well, I can’t say I blame them for wanting out of the heat…If I wasn’t so out of shape, I’d give it up myself.

Here are a couple of the other species I find on my walks…

Here’s the other…

Enjoy your summer…

    1. Thanks, Beth.

      Today’s walk had me wondering at the butterflies…Tiny ones, medium ones, orange ones, white ones, black ones…Tough to photograph as they flitter here and there.
