It truly was a breakthrough day for me and my Odes. Starting to note "different things" before me. This Sympetrum acted different from others I'd seen...because...it was.
First of three lifers here at Alpine Pond. Thank you, dpom

Thrill-of-the-Day. When Donna called "Spreadwing" I thought, "No, I saw those with Ken-ichi the other day. They're tiny like Damsels."
Evidently they come in Darner size. Extraordinary creature. Tjose eyes!
