June 17, 2012 — Bayfield County
My house off Wanabo Rd just west of Washburn
Common Green Darner (Anax junius)
Just a couple individuals
2 individuals, both with completely striped thoraxes
American Emerald (Cordulia shurtleffii)
Ocellated Emerald (Somatochlora minor)
My first ever in Bayfield County! Foraging over my front lawn as I raked grass.
Common Whitetail (Plathemis lydia)
Four-spotted Skimmer (Libellula quadrimaculata)
My first ever! I never saw it perched and just managed a couple of identifiable flight shots. When I first saw it, I thought it was a glider but it seemed darker reddish-brown than orange. I thought I better get some pics b/c it could be something good and my suspicion was confirmed!
