夏の生き物 Summer Creatures
Some of the critters I saw on today's ride. There were hundreds of cicadas flying off the trees as I rode passed, some of which thumped into me.
This brown dipper was interesting to watch but difficult to photograph. It was skimming through the water and over the rocks as it headed upstream.
This constable butterfly landed on the path near me. It has a beautiful color and pattern and it's width was about 7 cm. You can see its caterpillars here.
There are a lot of large dragonflies around this year. I was able to get a shot of this light blue male white-tailed skimmer today.
I went to the supermarket and found these ganache caffe latte frozen smoothies and decided to try them. They tasted pretty good. Just what I needed after a hot ride.
