More odonates from Trout Brook Valley

Here are some more odonates I have seen and/or netted at the Trout Brook Valley Conservation Area of the Aspetuck Land Trust in the last week.

Swamp Darner female, one of several

Stream Cruiser male patrolling, you guessed it, a stream

Widow Skimmer female

  Harlequin Darner males, both "netted" because they landed on me!

Delta-spotted Spiketail

Eastern Red Damsel female

Dusky Clubtail female

Prince Baskettail record shot, tough to photograph or net!

Tule Bluet male

Violet Dancer

Twin-spotted Spiketail, my highlight netting of the week

 The twin spots

We are now up to 32 species with hopefully many more to come!
