No Birds

Been a messed-up summer with family medical emergencies. Did get over to the wildlife area at Crown Hill Park in Wheat Ridge the other day. Didn't see many birds, but did shoot a few pics of insects, reptiles and such.

The water was high with tons of dragon flies out over the flooded field. They are very interesting insects. I have to research why it is some fly around attached to one another. I assume it's a mating thing, but I don't know.

Also saw this nice green frog hiding out in the duck weed. Had to really look closely to pick it out.

I always enjoy turtles. Don't know why, I just like them. They are difficult to sneak up on, however. This particular one has a slug riding along on it's shell.
