I'm in Alpine still trying to recover from my flu. Apparently there's a bad strain of it going around that isn't protected from by this year's flu shot. But because I had the vaccine, I have a milder case. My daughter-in-law is much sicker with it.
Walking out by our ponds for awhile I saw this Variegated Meadowhawk, one of my least favorite dragonflies. But it's the only species I've seen this year, so I condescended to photographing it. It's amazing what a person will do if desperate enough.
One of these days I'm going to sort out the various species of Locoweed (Astragalus), but for now just documenting.
