Hello dear reader, and welcome to my third and final follow-up to my 10-19-2019 blog entry, Saturday in the PARKS. As some of you may recall, in the aforementioned entry, I discussed the fact that that I would be spending part of my morning in Brooklyn's Prospect Park and then part of the afternoon in Manhattan's Central Park; and I promised to follow-up on October 25th 2019, with the hope that a few of my observations are inspiring to you.
However, as I said in this past Wednesday's blog entry, I've decided to split that content into a few (three) entries, rather then make one lengthy posting. The aforementioned posting discusses an aspect (an encounter with a bird whose ID determination caused a "controversy") of my October 19th walk in Central Park.
Then in yesterday's entry, I discussed my walk in Prospect Park and included a promise that I would talk about other aspects of my 10-19-2019 Central Park walk on Friday, October 25th 2019... so here I am to do just that, beginning with my sighting of a fast moving red dragonfly (seen in the pictures atop this entry) who was spending time within The Hallett Nature Sanctuary.
I had never seen a red dragonfly before. Moreover, I had never seen this type of insect within the Hallett Sanctuary. When ever I'd seen dragonflies in Central Park, they were in the vicinity of Turtle Pond, as I've mentioned in prior entries where I have included many photo-ops, including copies of the ones directly below.
Additionally, on one occasion, a dragonfly visited my garden to snack on my Autumn Clematis as seen in the following image.
