Wandering Around

We finally had some warm and dry weather so I wondered around the property.  This winter and early spring I spent some time photographing a moss on an old elm stump at the edge of our yard.  I went over and checked it out.

The moss is still there, but it is under a canopy of other plants now.  Poison ivy is right there in front.

I have not yet identified the moss (but I am going to get around to it).  It has made some significant changes and maybe I will post photos I have taken over the seasons sometime.

And, I found a bug that was new to me.  This is a fragile forktail, Ischnura posita.  So far I have identified 19 species of dragonflies and damselflies on our property.  I am sure there are more that I haven’t photographed or identified yet.
