Baby Blue Dragonflies & Clean Turtle Shells
The sun is actually not bearing down to where we can go to the ranch after lunch and not melt. Not that much to do. John let me off at the stock tank while he went to fill the house water. The turtles were ready to eat and even some of them climbed the sides to get to me. Yeah right it was the bread they knew I had in my hand. The water is still up so I can't get down near the water like usual so I stood on top and they tried to come to me. Some of them could make it and some had to wait for me to pitch the bread into the water. Their shells are free of the ugly muck so they are pretty, at least for now. The mesquitoes are bad and there were lots of dragonflies over the edge of the water. The dragonflies are pretty too. They are baby blue in color and I've never seen that. I don't know if they are that color this time of year or if they are a certain kind but they sure were pretty. There was a few mud hens on the other side of the water but other then them everything was quiet. I put out some lettuce where I've seen the rabbit. Not much chance of it finding it as it covers a lot of area in it's travels looking for food. Even the renters were quiet and we can't figure them out. They have cleared out the whole back yard. No geese, chickens, cats, little dogs, turkeys. Before the yard was always full of animals.
