Your July photos depicted summer in all of its rich color and life.  Flying insects were a frequent theme, including some spectacular images of giant moths, and a cheering number of images of both adult monarchs and caterpillars. You also spent a lot of time by water: a damselfly posed on a waterlily, a big bull moose ate a lily snack, and a gorgeous male red-winged blackbird showed off his wings from his perch on a cattail. Speaking of red, check out the images of glossy baneberries and cardinal flowers in bloom.
