My nephew Colin is often just the right kind of kid. Yesterday, while James (Kelly’s brother) were doing the BBQ thing, Colin walked up and said: “let’s go hiking -that’s what you want to do.” So off we went to the creek. Development has changed access to the creek from across the street, to down the street, to now about a half mile down the street is where the housing and no trespassing signs finally allow access. When we made the woods associated with the creek there were satyr butterflies and dozens of Calopteryx maculata. Watching the gourgeous ebony wings and gorgeous metallic bodies of the Calopteryx damselflies flit into and out of the sun/shade just made me feel better. Colin was right – it is what I needed.
