Learning Experiences: A Collection of Observations

Here are some observations I made that I remember or would like to remember because I learned valuable information from learning them. This post will serve as a repository not only for myself but for anyone else who may stumble upon it and could learn along with me. Note that this post will be subject to change. The pursuit of knowledge is a continual process and I will surely make more observations of this nature going forward, which will be added here. Due to this, if this is of interest to you, perhaps check back here on occasion.

Description

Is this little guy/girl okay? I've never encountered one sitting like this before. What is it doing? After I took the first photo it flew around for a few moments before landing again, still with its abdomen raised as seen In the second picture, though it's not as clear as the first.

Definitely Ophion sp. though, I've seen them around this location before.
