It was wonderful getting back to the Preserve after a month's hiatus. A beautiful sunrise on this cool summer morning made the long hike with the tripod worth the effort (although I was pretty pooped after walking three hours here and there). There were a number of critters to be seen, including a noisy raccoon pilfering wild grapes in a tree by the trail. The dragonflies are abundant and friendly, especially the variegated meadowhawks (small, rusty-colored). People were friendly, especially volunteer Erin, who was eager to talk awhile. Thanks, Erin, for your contribution to the Preserve.
