Ringtail

DSC_5414 crop

This is a White-Belted Ringtail that was sipping from our lantana over the weekend. I was photographing Skippers and didn’t even see him at first. Click photo to enlarge and see his beautiful, shimmering wings.

Last year Tony photographed one of these in our yard and, soon after, I was able to find several kinds of dragonflies to photograph at Watson Lake.

Here are a couple other views of him but I like the first one best.
