Couple of odd wildlife shots
2

I was out looking for birds today, but came across two oddities. Sitting on the pavement, in bright sun and showing absolutely no modesty at all, were a pair of mating Dragonflies. This is something I have never come across before.

Soon after that, I saw a painted turtle that was shedding its shell, something else I had not seen before. So, although there was an almost complete lack of birds, it turned out to be a pretty interesting day anyway.

Not my best work, but very harsh light and heat coming coming off the pavement for the dragonflies, and had to shoot through heavy brush that was partially obstructing the turtle shot.  Just glad I was able to get the shots.
