On our early morning walk with the dog in the Bear Creek Greenbelt, my better half and I watched this beaver enjoy a meal in Bear Creek:

Another dragonfly I’d never seen before:

This afternoon after work there was a brief thunderstorm and then the sun came back out.  It looked so nice that my better half and I took another stroll in the Bear Green Greenbelt with the dog, this time to the east.  We found the Hooded Merganser family in the pond next to Stone House.
