Found on woodland trail leading down to creek. Girl held it for over an hour showing it off.
Biggest one I've seen, at about 16" long. :)
First time seeing one, so hope I got the right ID. So beautiful!
Many Western Fence Lizards sunning today. Most creative sunning spot was this one. :)
Park was thick with them on the wing, this sunny day.
Lots of them blooming in the woods now.
5 individuals - 2 mating pair + 1 single on some of the first Buckeye blooms in park.
This old dairy barn's owl box has been used for many years by Barn owls. This year I saw these three owlets in it & a parent flew out as I peeked in. Also pictured is a recently deceased owl just outside the barn. Am guessing it was a 4th owlet who was preyed on.
