Spotted a new (to me) dragonfly today at Lake Cheston: the Blue-faced Meadowhawk (Sympetrum ambiguum). At first I didn't believe what I saw: blue eyes, white face, gray-blue thorax, dark brown-black and yellow stripes on the red abdomen, yellow underneath. I kept snapping, and he kept letting me.
I watched him prepare the sperm packet, grab a female, alight in the grass, on the concrete, and then on my too-white shoe. Alas, no sharp photo of the female, but now I know where they are.
I shall return.
