This spring I’ve been busy looking for pictures of Baltimore Orioles that would improve on what I’ve taken in the past. Not as easy as you might think as they spent a lot of time in the tops of trees.
While pursuing Orioles, sometimes you just get lucky and stumble upon a male and female Wood Duck as you paddle the shoreline of Griggs. Or maybe it’s a female Mallard with babies. Then there are the unbelievable things that you can’t or don’t get a picture of, like a Kingbird actually riding on the back of a Red Tailed Hawk as they fly over the reservoir.
The warblers slowly give way to dragonflies and damselflies as we head into June. Young plants, still perfect, create beautiful patterns as sunlight plays on their leaves.
On the Scioto small mouth bass provide a welcome break from my Oriole quest.
Thanks for stopping by.
