Seen recently along the C&O Canal and Potomac River in Montgomery County. I’m still posting pictures instead of writing…
Green heron (Butorides virescens). Picture taken with 24-70mm lens. I bought a 70-200mm lens a week later. But no matter how long a lens you get, it’s never enough.
Look at all the algae on the canal!
Damselfly. I’m not sure which species. Not even sure which family.
Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) on a smartweed (Persicaria, species to be determined).
