Cayuga College Nature Trail

Since the skies were blue and the sun shining, decided to walk the Cayuga College Trail to look for dragonflies.


First Pond

Maintenance worker was mowing the grass so I moved on. But before I left checked on the footbridge. There was a dragonfly on the rail.


Proceeded to the second pond. Which is extremely overgrown.
