Some Dragonfly!
While taking photos of dragonflies at Horseshoe Lake,
THE BIGGEST dragonfly of them all suddenly appeared!
This Forestry Department helicopter was supporting a controlled burn a short distance away.
I watched the skilled pilot execute this precision maneuver 2-3 times in an hour or so.
Up, up and away!
Off it goes to release its huge bucket of water on the controlled burn.
When other volunteers shared that this method was used to extract water from Hidden Lake to combat the Loma fire, I responded that it was done for the greater good of the entire ecosystem and therefore, the possible loss of some endangered pond turtles was acceptable.
