Brief field notes from a walk from about 3:30-4:30pm, to the north pond and then over to the fishing pond. Weather Underground said the Fort Worth temperature was 84F with 35% humidity and barometer at 30.12 and falling. My thermometer said 86F in the shade; it was sunny and felt quite warm.
At the pond there were, of course, several turtles in the water and many dragonflies (such as pondhawks and whitetails). An adult leopard frog jumped into the path and then on into the pond. Late summer blooms attracted bees and a painted lady butterfly.
At the other pond, the Maximillian’s sunflowers have grown wild and tall, and the flowers are always beautiful. I never get tired of them.
