Was found near a pond by the Louisa bus garage
My partner Erika and I captured what we strongly believe to be a Blue Corporal (Ladona deplanata) dragonfly near the pond next to our school (flying around in tall grass). A ton of different dragonflies were around the pond as well.
We believe it to be a female; it's abdomen is small and its body is a pale, dark blue. We thought at first it was an Eastern Pondhawk but its face and eyes are black. The distinct feature on its wings are the brown rectangular spots near the tips and the coloration where the wings attached to its body.
