We had a wonderful nature photo walk at the Alderfer-Oenslager Wildlife Sanctuary of Medina Park System this afternoon and had the park nearly to ourselves! The sky was cloudy and the air was warm and heavy with humidity — it rained quite a lot last night! Unfortunately we saw no wading birds, in fact no aquatic birds at all! Still, the late-summer flowers and waterlilies made up for much. Oh yes, and then there were dragonflies! Not many, mind you, but just enough to keep this fan happily clicking away as the beautiful few went about their business. Today’s feature was the gorgeous Yellow-legged Meadowhawk. I had the good fortune to come across a dragonfly who seemed to like having his picture taken for not only did he pose prettily on some plant leaves, he hovered in flight! It appears summer is winding down at the pond.
