Odonata Update

It’s rare to run into a new Odonata species in my patch. The other day, though, I noticed a large dragonfly cruising along the edges of Sylvan Water. That red abdomen was so distinctive. This turned out to be a male Comet Darner (Anax longipes).

A month ago, I managed to capture an Epitheca genus baskettail, also at Sylvan. Can’t quite take it to species level with my photos, though. Like the Comet, this one did not stop moving.
