This dragonfly was perched at the top of a tall mesquite, and as i was down in the creek bottom, had to photograph it from quite a distance.
The wings are dark at the base, smokey at the tip, and held forward. Black legs and red eyes also suggest this ID.

This froggie, like all the other frogs, fled at the sight of me, hopping up underneath a ledge in the rocks beside the pond. From his hiding place he began making this pitiful cry. Any sound made by me would set him off, so my "ch-ch" prompts are also audible in the recording.
The photo is of an individual just like him; they were myriad
