In search of sun, solitude and dragonflies we visit yet another of the Columbus area fine Metroparks - Prairie Oaks. There are a number of small lakes here (remnants of past quarrying activity) - perfect for finding great dragonflies such as this Male Eastern Amberwing:
On the shore we found this little plant that, interestingly, was common where we lived in SE New Mexico. It's in the Verbena family and is called Frogfruit. There it was frequented by nectar-seeking butterflies.
Mid-day warmth means naptime!:
Other resting creatures included this Male Widow Skimmer:
Another day of fun at another great metropark!
