Swimming Deer

A few days ago, early in the morning, I was fishing the west shoreline of Griggs Reservoir in my 14′ Hornbeck. One of the joys of fishing, at least the way I do it, is that you can look around for interesting birds or animals as you fish. On this particular morning I wasn’t disappointed as several deer came down to the water’s edge for drink or so I thought.

A few days later on a walk below Griggs Reservoir Dam we stumbled across a nesting site for a pair a Prothonotary Warblers. Not a nesting box but a woodpecker hole in a dead tree!

We continue to see new, or new for the year, insects. While it’s sometimes a challenge, we always enjoy trying to ID them.

Finally, during a paddle today, we saw this flower at the north end of O’Shaughnessy Reservoir. Do you know what it is?
