Here in the Willamette valley we are smoked in. Covid plus ash fall makes going outside less than a fine experience. So here are a couple submissions from our far-flung volunteer photography unit:

The horned lizard was sent to us by Bronwen Magraw from her home turf in western Colorado. The young Bald Eagle was seen along the coast of North Carolina by Mike Lund.

Then, to brighten a smoke-gloomed day, a quartet of gaudy midgets from the lens of Albert Ryckman–blue darter (on the berries), flame skimmer, paddle tailed darner (in flight), great pondhawk (on reed leaf). Makes you doubly glad not to be a midge or mosquito, don’t it?
