I have a very small pond and as I've mentioned before it tends to dry out in the heat of the summer leaving a crispy batch of dried fish and tadpole treats for the local birds. Last year at this time it was just that. This year is a different story. The tadpoles are fat and happy and the dragon and damselflies are beginning to show up. Two days ago I had my first sighting of a Common Whitetail perched on a twig.
Yesterday the very popular female Eastern Forktail was doing her thing...Good stretch! And the Common Green Darners were, well.....you know! (ROY!!! This one's for you!)
I just had to throw in a picture of one of the birdhouse gourds that my daughter planted last year.
