We had a busy day with family, going to Campbellford for a breakfast picnic, picking strawberries at Brambleberry (above), and a burrito supper.

I’m not sure which Polygonia sp. this is (Question Mark or Comma, maybe grey?).

A short-horned grasshopper holds on to vetch (Vicia sp.).

I left this frame uncropped to show just how tiny this black and white moth was.

This is the most common damselfly at the farm (Odonata: Zygoptera: Calopterygidae: Calopteryx maculata). It stayed on this goldenrod long enough for me to get a few nice shots. I also saw skippers, ringlets, water droplets, and green lacewings today (on flickr).

I thought that the zoom lens would enable me to get closer to animals without disturbing them but the lens does not focus close enough for my use.

A fly at rest on the truck box allowed for a few photos.
