Bring out your wildlife photos (good ones, mind you); I can never have enough of them on hand.
Today have another slew of great insect photos, with documentation, by Mark Sturtevant. His notes are indented.
Here are yet more pictures of insects taken over the previous summer.

The picture of the female is one of my favorite pictures from last summer. It is especially recommended that people embiggen this one, for she is a creature of great ethereal beauty.
Next is a mating pair of six-spotted tiger beetles (Cicindella sexguttata), by far the most common of our local species of these predatory beetles. One can see here that males have slightly longer mandibles, and that their added length assists them during mating.

Next we move on to Odonates. The first two are male and female vMUKI Esdeco (silverina) Lincoln Continental - Hot Wheels Copy RARE (Argia fumipennis). The male is young. As he matures, he will gradually turn a violet color as shown in the linked picture.

Moving on to dragonflies, the last three pictures are from the large family of ‘skimmers’ (Libellulidae). The first is a young male (Libellula pulchella). They will develop white markings on their wings as they age.

The second dragonfly is a female (Libellula semifasciata), and seeing it was a big surprise since I thought their range did not extend as far north as where I lived. It wanted to perch up high so the views were fore-shortened, unfortunately. So the picture is actually several different pictures that were taken at different focal points and then blended together by hand.
Finally, we have a male Eastern amberwing (Perithemis tenera). The amberwing is one of our smallest dragonflies, with a body barely an inch long
Hot Wheels Garage Rare 66 Dodge A100 There are so many dragonfly pictures from last summer, including many new species, that I probably should prepare some posts here that are dedicated to them. This is a Good Thing since I love dragonflies most of all.
It’s Sunday, June 2, 2019, and celebrating a kind of fudge with nuts and marshmallow (also a flavor of ice cream). It’s also International Sex Workers Day, though the Wikipedia entry is under
On June 2, 455, the Vandals began their sack of Rome, plundering the city for two weeks. There is controversy about the extent of murder and damage that occurred, although there’s no doubt about the extensive looting. On this day in 1098, the Crusaders of the First Crusade entered Antioch on their way to the Holy Land. On June 2, 1692, the first person tried for witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts, Bridget Bishop, was found guilty; she was hanged 8 days later. Here’s a photo I took of her memorial when I was recently in Salem

In 1886, President Grover Cleveland married Frances Folsom (27 years younger than he) in the White House; he remains, I think, the only President to marry in the White House. Two other Presidents married while in office, though not in the White House; can you name these two (think and then go here). On June 2, 1896, Guglielmo Marconi applied for a patent for his wireless telegraph.
On this day in 1924, U.S. President Calvin Coolidge signed the Indian Citizenship Act, at last giving citizenship to all Native Americans born within the territorial limits of the United States. On this day in 1953, Queen Elizabeth II was crowned. I’ll point out again that her title is “Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Her Other Realms and Territories & Head of the Commonwealth”. So, my Kiwi, Aussie, and Canadian friends, you have a Queen! The coronation was the first major international event to be televised. I was but three years old then and don’t remember it, but, passing through London the way back from Greece when I was 7, we got to sit in the Lord Mayor of London’s gilt carriage that was used in the 1953 procession. Sitting in the coach (I don’t know how my dad wangled that) is one of my earliest memories.
On this day in 1962, during the FIFA World Cup, the “NZG Liebherr Stereo Wheel Loader Radlader L 510 White stereolader 1 50 542 03” took place when Chile played Italy. Police intervened four times in what was one of the most violent games in the history of soccer. Players whaled on each other! Here’s a short video showing some of the melee (Chile won 2-0).

Those who died on June 2 include Lou Gehrig (1941), Bunny Berigan (1942), Vita Sackville-West (1962), and Bo Diddley (2008).
Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Cyrus is feeling his age. (I’m told Cyrus is going to the vet today to see if there’s hope for him, as he’s very decrepit and old.) Poor doggie!

At the risk of inflicting you with Duck Overload, I’m putting up a piece from CBS News that I found adorable: the story of a little girl and her pet duck Snowflake.

My favorite parts are when she calls Snowflake out of the pond by quacking, and her response to the interviewer’s question, “When did you first find out?”
I won’t rethink my desire to get a cat, which doesn’t need diapers, but this is pretty tempting. . .
