I did get a better photo of yesterday's lifer Plains Forktail, so all was not lost, although a better photo would have been better.
These next damselflies still haven't been ID'd. If I get them ID'd I'll update this post.
|Arroyo Bluet per Kelly Bryan|
|Mexican Forktail per Kelly Bryan|
|Plains or Black-fronted Forktail per Kelly Bryan|
|Black-fronted Forktail per Kelly Bryan|
The above two are the same species, whatever that is.
Birds are much easier for me. This is a Vermilion Flycatcher that's camping out at the ponds for now.
UPDATE: Kelly Bryan ID'd the odes. I'll label them so it won't be confusing. Thanks, Kelly. (I'm pretty sure the one Kelly ID'd as Plains or Black-fronted is actually a Black-fronted, based on other shots I have of it.)
I got confused and forgot to post these Aztec Dancers.
Whew, every summer I get this stuff sorted out, and then forget by the next summer. I'm hoping it'll eventually "take" and I won't have to start all over again every year.
