Always that way, right? The creature you come all day looking for, then last stop - it's in abundance! So stunning, that..purple.
Donna keyed these for me at the distance...
So...I've only iNated a dead one of these cuz they Never Land. Donna and I walking down to the river through this park grass. Something lands in the tree. Jumps up - "Wow, Black Saddlebags!" - then remands in same spot and I get this lone shot...Barely showing field marks.
Target species for the day. Many more along this City Park beach along the Russian River.
Hadn't seen this species all season...
I've seen these a dozen times at this location, but lack the gear to get a nice image.
Notice the tick in photo 2.

Found growing it the middle of a pile of leaves. Two of the same plant was found in the same area. Is about one foot in length wide. Is green. The leaves of the plant are round.
