August 17, 2012Damselflies of Alberta: Flying Neon Toothpicks in the Grass.
Today, instead of taking lunch like a normal person, I went out to the pond with Kimball Garrett to survey for adult Odonates. Odo-what? I mean dragonflies and damselflies (the flying neon toothpicks), the jeweled predators of the sky.
Among other things, Kimball and I found damselflies for the first time. Yay! Here are some pictures of what we found:
The first ever damselfly to be found in the pond!
