Thursday morning the edgeland cur and I spotted this tree duck on a telephone pole across from the abandoned AT&T maintenance yard. You can always hear those birds before you see them, and then when you see them, they always seem bigger than you remember, bigger and gawkier, the kind of ducks that really get their goose on, which is maybe why they seem to adapt so well to cities.
I look forward to reading your weekly piece. Please keep them coming.
Well done. Thanks.
Those are damselflies, which can fold their wings at rest, unlike dragonflies...
Christopher's blog settles me every Sunday. Not sure I could get along without it now. Thanks.
Beautiful column – I just discovered your writing a few weeks ago and I love to read these stories of your rambles. Beautiful photo too of the dragonflies, although I wonder if they are actually damselflies. In any case it's a variety I haven't seen around my southern Ontario neighbourhood.
