Dragonfly jackpot!

I spent the day with @brentano at a couple of places I had never been to before. Of course he is always looking for Odes, but I usually have my eyes toward tiny creatures. The day/location/guide did not disappoint! I saw 4 lifer dragonflies (Russet-tipped Clubtail, Swift River Cruiser, Cobra Clubtail, and Prince Basketail) and more Widow Skimmers than you could possibly count.

We saw other stuff, too, but I haven't finished editing those photos. I just had to get the dragonflies up!

Edited 6/18: Oops! I forgot to include the Calico Pennant!

It was an awesome day even for me. Three of those were only second ever sightings for me. Glad you were able to tag along. I really want to o get back out there after the day we had.
