Pair fishing in shallows.
Pair with another male staying nearby.
Helminthoglypta nickliniana ssp. anachoreta (W. G. Binney, 1857)
Monadenia infumata (Gould, 1855)
This calypso orchid appeared on the shoulder of the forest road in Orrs Creek watershed.
A few of them were flying and chattering back and forth from island to shore.
Watched it fishing/diving near shore or floating in center of river over two days. (River is higher than visit 3 weeks ago, from reservoir releases.)
Three of these on the ground and flitting around the trails. Too far for a photo. Could see well through the binoculars and saw the flash of white as they flew off.
Late morning. I could hear all kinds of birds in the upper canopy at Armstrong, but only got a visual on the Robin flying to a branch right in front of me on Pool Ridge Trail.
