Springtime Darner Closeup
This year marked our third pilgrimage and my first as a leader. The weather was great most of the time, even if everything in nature seemed a week behind. Last yeas was definitely better in terms of odes, but I still managed to see some great things. The first walk I did was on Saturday at 2:30. The sun was shining, but I hadn’t seen many dragonflies. As I stopped at the shore to drop off my nets, I found a Springtime Darner emerging. What a great way to start off the talk! I also had a few celebrity bloggers in attendance: Jennifer from A Passion for Nature and Toni from A Spattering. There was a lot of great questions from all age levels.

The second walk was at 10:30 am Sunday, and once again I had an emerging dragonfly. This time it was three Common Baskettails. I also had about double the number of participants, and three times as many questions! I also had another blogger in the audience, Mary from Mary McAndrew’s Nature Sketching and Painting. I took this last picture about two hours before my walk, but it was too cool not to include in this post!
