Description

Leonora's Dancer (Argia leonorae) was the most common damsel species at this location on this visit. I have encountered the species here in the past, but have missed it on other visits. There were literally hundreds here this time. Note the variability in the shoulder stripes as well as abdominal markings of these several individuals. For whatever reason this seems to be be a variable species in appearance in my experience.
