August 10, 2014 — Florence County

Chain of lake in extreme northeastern Florence County. Water quality appeared to be quite good.

Black-shouldered Spinyleg (Dromogomphus spinosus)
Many individuals throughout the chain. Seen resting on the docks.

Slaty Skimmer (Libellula incesta)
Saw this species only on East and South Lakes of the chain. No less than 30 individuals. Wherever I found the combination of lily pads, sunshine and some submerged timber that created perching sites, I found a group of these skimmers. Noted some females egg laying as well.
