Dragonfly, Ottawa ON

Viewed through the window, the backyard was aswarm with birds:

  • Robin
  • Starling
  • Chickadee
  • Cardinal
  • Chipping sparrow
  • American redstart

But when I went outside, this was the only guy who wanted his picture taken, and even he was too skittish to let me take a standard portrait. I moved from behind to beside him, but when I got round to his front, he took off. Maybe I looked like a bird.

    Hopefully he took off to go reduce the mosquito population !!
    No song sparrow in your backyard? (Although come to think about it, I haven’t heard it for about a week now..)

      Jim – I have not noticed a song sparrow, but everyone flits in and out so quickly, I might well have missed one or a hundred.
