Description

Blue-eyed Darner is a common western dragonfly across much of the western U.S. Here in central Texas, for some reason, we do not see them in spring and summer and for whatever reason they seem to just be evident only in October and November. This morning ericisley and I found a number of males patrolling the edge of a pond and a few would hover for a few seconds allowing us to get some nice flight shots, certainly the best flight shots of the species I've ever taken. We also found a pair in copula which I believe is the first actual breeding by the species documented locally. Image 2 is a cropped version of image 1.
