I impulsively drove over to Corkscrew after lunch, determined to get some interesting photos. Alas, the birds weren’t around, but I did see plenty of lizards and dragonflies.
Lizards were active, too. I’m always surprised at the variety of colors and patterns they offer. It’s been a very long time since I saw the green anole, however; the invasive brown ones have almost wiped them out.
On my way out, I spotted this small orange-red dragonfly. Due to the angle of the sun, it almost appears to be brown. But it was the red that caught my eye. This dragonfly was no more than two inches long. I was unable to ID it. 😦 The sun sparkles on the wings are great, aren’t they?
As I was leaving, an older couple arrived, wearing Corkscrew volunteer shirts. They were walking the trails, making sure everything was okay and answering questions from visitors. Too bad they didn’t arrive earlier; a busload of kids were there when I pulled in. I still wonder if their presence drove the birds away. Kids are noisy. 😉
There’s time to visit again before the summer heat sets in, however. Have a great week!
