Sighting for June 8, 2022

Front yard, East Anchorage
Anchorage Municipality, AK

Sunny, breezy, and 71° from 6 to 7pm. While experimenting with my camera and a new 55mm lens, I spotted a pair of worn Green Commas flying around the street in front of the house. I’ve been seeing a single very skittish comma there for about a week now and was happy to find tonight that there were two. Better still, they were quite approachable and I managed to get some photos even with the fairly short lens - including shots of one of the commas perched on my knee where it sat at length.
