Slow day

It frustrates me that so many birders are visiting and birding is so slow for migration. The group yesterday saw the screech-owl, but not the Lucifer Hummingbird. The group today saw the Lucifer but not the owl.
Here's a crispy, fresh looking dragonfly I saw today. I'm in Alpine and my book is at the oasis but I think it's a Variegated Meadowhawk.

Wildflowers are everywhere, but this lone flower inspired me to take its photo. I don't remember what kind it is. Maybe a hibiscus?


  1. Looks like some sort of evening-primrose to me.

  2. Thanks. That's what others have said too. I don't know why I didn't recognize it since this photo was taken at the place where Evening Primrose always grow. Guess I'm getting senile.
