Pueblo Reservoir October 2011

Needed a quick get-a-way from all the family obligations of late, so camped over night at Pueblo Reservoir. Birding was slow, but I did find this nice Canyon Towhee, a first for me, right in the campground. A very stocky bird.

Down by the river, a saw an Osprey land on a big old dead tree, but it was pretty far off. Also found this pretty butterfly feeding on the lingering rabbit brush.

There was a flock of Yellow-rumped Warblers working the willows along the river, but never got a decent shot.

Back home, hanging around the last blossoms on the Butterfly Bush was this dragon fly.
