Today I mostly languished and made plans for projects at CMO next week. Gonna water the soapberry one time, I decided. And pour a small concrete pad in the viewing area, paint and install the steps in the guesthouse that Hugh and I built today. Always more stuff planned than I can ever get done. Such is my life.
My seven ducks are all grown up. They fly between the ponds like pros. Wonder if they'll leave ever. I doubt it.
I'm always hoping for good photos of female amberwings, but almost never see one, even though Kelly got awesome pics of one recently at CMO that I posted here Sep 7. So when I saw one ovipositing (laying eggs) in a puddle of water inside a lotus leaf I started snapping, knowing I wouldn't be fast enough to stop the action but just possibly I'd get something halfway decent. Turned out about as expected.
