Upstate New York

It looks like I won't have time to recount my Labor Day vacation in upstate New York. That said, here are some photos that I took over the several days we spent visiting family in the town of Windham.


Multicolored Asian Lady Beetle

Fragile Forktail

Eastern Forktail Damselfly


Garden Phlox



New England Aster

Ruby-throated Hummingbird

I just received the following from my friend Steve:

The Convergent Ladybug Beetle looks like a Multicolored Asian Lady Beetle. The side view of the pronotum is white but on Convergent Ladybug Beetle it should be black with pencil thin white edges.

The unidentified damsel looks like a male
Fragile Forktail. There is an interrupted green stripe on the top of the body forming an exclamation point.
