And again...

Dasmselfly of the day: Spreadwing. Variety unknown -- apparently, they are very difficult to distinguish.
Some brief notes:
  • Purple coneflower is finally blooming in my yard (which seems to be about 2 weeks behind school).
  • At Illinois Beach state park, the irises are essentially done; the last few are looking ratty.
  • Spiderwort is still in full bloom; it blooms for so long!
  • Linden is in full flower.
  • Catalpa are finished flowering in some cases, but others have many flowers still.
  • Butterflyweed is almost open; other milkweeds are in full bloom.
  • The lilies in my yard are open; and the roses which keep blooming year after year despite my utter neglect opened last weekend.

  1. I am going to take a guess and say that that is the common spreadwing.
