Oh My, What Lovely Saddlebags You Have!

September 12, 2012

Quick Dragonfly Update! I've documented another dragonfly visiting our pond. It was a Black Saddlebags, Tramea lacerata. My phone's camera couldn't capture a picture of this fast-flying critter, but I was able to send myself an e-mail documenting the find. Here's the e-mail: "Saw a saddlebags by pond August 22, 2012 3:00pm" This brings our total number of dragonflies and damselflies to six species! Check out this recent post to see the the other five.
