Flycatcher, or Kingbird

One would think eating a dragonfly whole would be a daunting task for this bird. It even escaped for a few seconds, only to be quickly repatured. In a short time it was swallowed, and the flycatcher sat opening and closing its beak for a minute. Then it flew down to the grass, caught a grasshopper, flew back up to its perch, and commenced to swallow that too.



Summer night

It was such a mild and beautiful Manitoba summer night. Mosquitoes? I heard one, and brushed it away.

The Big Dipper was beautiful. Mars shone low in the southern sky. And Pleiades, The Seven Sisters, was eye catching in the east.
