Pond Watch

We saw lots of dragonflies on Pond Watch today.
The Eastern Amberwings were abundant.

Common White tails were very common.

We watched dragonflies for two hours.

We are now able to identify many of the dragonflies we have been seeing every week.
We both know this is a female Eastern Pondhawk

and this is a male Eastern Pondhawk.

The Blue Dashers strikes a classic dragonfly pose.

We keep seeing  a large red dragonfly that I think is a Ruby Meadowhawk.
So far we have not been able to get a photograph.
Xerces Society has added a few more dragonflies to look for.
Maybe next week we will spot them.

Dear Sherry,

Just beautiful, such elegant and colourful creatures. I love the Amberwing......reminds me of the glass the Victorians so loved :)
We get lots of Dragons and Dansels in the garden.....the Damsels use the pond to leave their eggs.
I managed to get an image a few days ago when the sun stopped hiding......

Sending the Rain Dragons to you......I think you need them more than I do :)
I think maybe it is Nella keeping them here, she seems to like running through puddles on the lawn at the moment........

Bardzo lubię ważki i ich prawie przeźroczyste skrzydełka. Zrobiłaś im świetne zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam.
I really like dragonflies and nearly transparent wings. You made them great pictures. Yours.

gorgeous as can be
they are so fun to watch
still we don't have many
perhaps once the solstice arrives then summer will set into our rainy spring land.....
for now it looks like a rain forest, with plenty of life, but not all the critters yet

thank you for sharing the beauty you find.
