Dragonfly #23


23

I believe that this is called a Blue Dasher Dragonfly here. I found him up to the Little Chocnut Site 2 area last weekend on one of my hikes. I think he is the biggest dragonfly that we have in our area.

  1. What a cool shot. I am pretty sure that this is not a Blue Dasher, which are a whole lot smaller than this one and generally perch horizontally. It looks to me like it might be a Shadow Darner (Aeshna umbrosa). This species is big and often is around later in the season than some other dragonflies.
