Back from Georgian Bay

It was a relaxing weekend on Beausoleil Island in southern Georgian Bay. The weather was constantly changing - hot and sunny one second, a thunderstorm the next. Overall though the weekend was very hot and humid, which likely limited herp activity during the afternoon to some extent. Nonetheless it was a great time and we saw about 15 species of reptile/amphibian along with around 75 bird species, including several singing Prairie Warblers. I also had a lot of fun catching dragonflies, swimming in the warm waters of Georgian Bay, sleeping in my hammock, and working on photography! I also counted 120 mosquito bites on one leg, which may be a personal best.

I'll try to get some photos up tomorrow. In the meantime, here is an identification quiz!

A gold star to whoever guesses the species correctly.
