Dragonflies, etc - 19 July 2009

Although I don't have many bird photos since last weekend, I thought I'd still write a quick update with some other random things....

First, I've been doing a little Breeding Bird Atlas work over the last couple days. Some things I consider interesting here in central Iowa included:

Willow Flycatcher (1)
Wood Thrush (2)
Least Flycatcher (1)
Chestnut-sided Warbler (1)
Bell's Vireo (5-6)

Secondly, I've photographed a few dragonflies over the past week. Below is a male Blue Dasher:
