One chick hatched July 3, I think. There are now two chicks in the nest just a few days from fledgling. I'll try to keep some photo records of them as my time permits.

Male Pachydiplax longipennis attempting to wipe rain from eyes

I went out the other day as it was about to rain to see if I could follow some dragonflies and find the best types of places they hole-up when it rains.

I got there a little too late and the rain was coming down pretty heavily so I just hung out under some tree cover and looked around.

As I moved from one covered spot to another I saw this lone Blue Dasher clinging to a branch, sitting there as it rained. He kept trying to wipe the large water droplet that had accumulated near the vertex but he was unable to dislodge it.

I don't know what it is like to see like a dragonfly but I imagine the water must distort the vision quite a bit. As well it could possibly have been a grooming response (just as if other detritus where resting on eyes) and not been related to the fact that the water may distort vision.

Either way, kind of funny to watch.
