The Fly!

The weather is finally warming and various signs of spring are showing up in nature, including insects.

While making one last visit to see the pelicans I spotted this fly warming itself on an information plaque.

For the Birds

On May 11th, I joined a group of birders at the Boulder Lake Environmental Learning Center in northern Minnesota as part of the Document Spring project.  The group had started out earlier to identify as many birds as possible, I believe it was around 70, before the Document spring group arrived.  We went on a short hike during which I tried to take photos of birds that are not willing models.  I also offered advice to the group on camera settings and technique.  I also spotted what I thought were interesting subjects.
