Sunday afternoon, we drove to Whalen Lake, part of an extensive park system in the Chicago metropolitan area.  The heat and humidity were beating down, but my husband had mentioned that there were lots of egrets the last time he rode his bike there.  Although we did spot some, most were too far away, probably due to the noise of a large group of picnickers under the shelter.  However, we did spot a number of birds and butterflies in the area, including a rare miniature dragon sighting.

I do not care what comes after; I have seen the dragons on the wind of morning.
~Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore

I desired dragons with a profound desire. Of course, I in my timid body did not wish to have them in the neighborhood. But the world that contained even the imagination of Fáfnir was richer and more beautiful, at whatever the cost of peril.
~J.R.R. Tolkien

Dragons and legends…It would have been difficult for any man not to want to fight beside a dragon.
