I really meant to ride my bike to the Corrales Harvest Festival when I got up on Sunday morning. Somehow the idea of crowds and noise did not appeal to me, so I went for a short fast ride, came home and decided to take some bird photos in the Corrales Bosque. I saw quite a few birds, but the insects were so abundant and lovely that I decided to photograph them.
The Figeater Beetles (a type of Scarab Beetle) were everywhere, flying right at me in their clumsy, bumblebee-like manner.
There were many dragonflies, spreadwings and damselflies.
I was able to identify the various species of odonata from Bosque Bill’s excellent website.
Honeybees were going about their business on the abundant wildflowers.
There were many small butterflies on the wildflowers too.
Some days you find birds, some days you find insects, some days you find both. It’s always lovely to walk in the Corrales Bosque.
