Odonates are popping up

Dragonfly and damselfly populations have been exploding during the warm and wet month of June. Get out there now if you want to see the peak of diversity in Connecticut. Even at places like Stratford Point you can find some migrants like the Painted Skimmer...

Or the Black Saddlebags...

Numbers will be on the rise for a while yet and after the next week of wet and unsettled weather we should have a bonanza of them in every expected habitat.
